Climate Action After Midterms: Inflation Reduction Act & WV v. EPA

November 10, 2022
4:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027

The Columbia Climate School presents an expert faculty panel on the changed legal and regulatory framework in the United States after the Midterm Elections, Inflation Reduction Act, and West Virginia vs. EPA.

Brief presentations will be followed by ample time for audience question and a reception for further mixing and discussion. This event is open to the public.

In this event a panel of experts will consider the changed legal and regulatory framework in the US and its implications for emissions, the extent to which the hoped-for emission reductions will reduce likelihood of dangerous climate change, how the expected climate change impacts children’s health in the US and the implications of the new American climate policies for international climate action.
