Just because Congress has not acted on climate change does not mean the president is powerless. The Environmental Protection Agency has considerable power to make regulations that would reduce carbon emissions. So how well can it work and what is the best way to achieve lower carbon? Brooking Institution Fellow Philip Wallach will be discussing those questions at a lecture at UNLV.

If you think energy is expensive now, and that prices of goods and services are high and going up too fast now, just wait for when the EPA starts regulating carbon as a pollutant. We will all suffer a new standard of living, one much lower than we have now.Tom Hurst –Mar 20, 2013 12:58:44 PM
