Highlights from CCL's D.C. conference
ICYMI, here you can wonk out! It was an excellent, inspiring event worth watching.
Climate as a National Security Issue: speakers from the American Security Project, retired military leaders representing the U.S. Marine Corps, Air Force and Navy.
Permitting Reform Panel: An entertaining and deeply informative panel discussion spanning right, left and center views on this critical issue now before Congress.
Rachel Kyte, former World Bank V.P., Dean of the Fletcher School, Tufts University, presents day one closing remarks. Insightful and inspiring.
Ambassador Frances Rooney, former House R-FL, coauthor of the first Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (soon to be reintroduced, we're told), discussing...wait for it... bipartisanship. Now that he's out of office, he can be forthright and his inside experience very helpful. Quite a few laughs, too.
Catching Up on Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanisms: Still confused? Have no fear. This discussion among experts from the Niskanen Center and Climate Leadership Council will help. CBAM is coming, US industry is already ahead of the curve, and Congress is racing to catch up.
