Three Science Policy Exchange Collaborators Quoted in the Washington Post

 

Three Science Policy Exchange collaborators are quoted in a new Washington Post article about air quality, health, and economic benefits of the Clean Power Plan. The article by Chris Mooney features quotes by Jonathan Levy of Boston University, Dallas Burtraw of Resources for the Future, and Kathy Fallon Lambert of Harvard Forest. All three spoke on the air quality, health, and economic benefits of the Clean Power Plan. The article reports that a recent analysis by the EPA calculated larger health and economic benefits from the implementation of this policy than was previously thought. Independent work by Science Policy Exchange collaborators points to large air quality & health, economic, and environmental benefits of implementing a carbon standard with similar characteristics to the Clean Power Plan.
