Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action is a monthly webinar series that aims to convene high-level, cross-cutting, nonpartisan conversations about issues relevant to national policy action on climate change. Join us April 15 for a conversation about the social cost of carbon and environmental justice in the United States.

The social cost of carbon (SCC) is a metric used for incorporating the economic impacts of carbon emissions into federal decision-making. Join us for a conversation with Richard Newell (Resources for the Future) about SCC, its importance for addressing the climate change challenge, and considerations for how SCC can advance just and economically sound policies. A second conversationalist with expertise in environmental justice and a moderator will be announced soon. The conversation will also touch on the social cost of other greenhouse gases.

The conversation will be webcast on this webpage on Thursday, April 15, 2021 from 3:00-4:00 pm EDT. 

Closed captioning will be provided during the webinar.
