Event Type Speaker
Organizer/Author
Who: Christopher Plante, Director, Environment Program, The Asia Foundation;
Ray Williams, Director, Long Term Energy Policy, PG&E

Event: In 2007 the United Nations declared that greenhouse gas emissions from human activity are responsible for a significant portion of the increase in the Earth’s average temperature. As a result, the debate over climate change has largely subsided; however, a new debate has emerged. What is the best climate change policy moving forward? More importantly, what is the most efficient and cost-effective policy? Join the Council and a panel of economic and policy experts for a discussion on the economic costs and barriers to implementing a successful climate change policy. What are the foreseeable costs to individuals, businesses and government? The panel will also compare climate change policies across developing and developed economies—specifically, taking a comparative look at China and California.

Where: World Affairs Council, 2nd Floor Auditorium, 312 Sutter St., San Francisco
