ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., March 1st, 2016 /3BL Media/ - On March 2nd, the Bard Center for Environmental Policy will be speaking with Rachel Cleetus, Lead Economist at the Union of Concerned Scientists about Renewables, Efficiency and Carbon Pricing. Rachel designs and advocates for effective global warming policies at the federal, regional, state, and international levels. These policies include market-based approaches (such as cap-and-trade programs) and complementary, sector-based approaches (such as efficiency, renewable energy, and clean technology research and development). She also analyzes the economic costs of inaction on climate change. 

According to Cleetus, "Our energy policy needs to integrate climate, public health, and development goals, i.e. the imperative to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy with clean energy access for all."
