Event Description: 
Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions will be hosting a panel discussion (September 17th) with experts from California and British Columbia on policy issues and lesson learned from over a decade of experience with carbon emission reduction policies. Join the panel of experts from California and BC as they untangle some of these policy issues: what has worked well in these systems, what hasn’t, and what obstacles remain? How effective has each policy been in reducing carbon pollution? What about regulation, such as a low carbon fuel standards or legislated closure of coal plants, as an alternative or complement to carbon pricing? And how can carbon-pricing be constructed so as to minimize impacts on key industrial sectors, lower-income households and food security?
