On October 23, SIEPR and The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution will co-convene a forum to explore economic policy innovations to combat climate change. The event will feature keynote remarks by Mary D. Nichols, chair, California Air Resources Board, and opening remarks from Robert E. Rubin, former U.S. Treasury Secretary, and Kathryn Moler, vice provost and dean of research and professor of applied physics, Stanford University.
