Join other enthusiasts of behavioral sciences to discuss the economics of climate change. Over the next two or three decades, a rapid move away from fossil energy will be cheaper than doing nothing. Plunging renewable costs mean a switch to carbon-free energy will save money and save the environment. Policy matters, though, and people do not always respond to market incentives fast enough. Solutions must also include mandates, efficiency requirements, and public spending on new technology.
Join Jay Coggins, PhD from the University of Minnesota’s economics department to discuss the implications of climate change from an economic perspective.
We start gathering at 5:30 pm and begin presentations at 6:00 pm. Everyone is welcome to stay for dinner at around 7:20 pm.
