Incentivizing Sustainability through Carbon Fees
The Louisville chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby invites you to a talk by UofL Economist Thomas Lambert on "Incentivizing Sustainability Through Carbon Fees." This public talk will be via ZOOM - register for the talk at incentivizingsustainability.eventbrite.com
Lambert will discuss the potential economic impacts of H.R. 763 the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, a bipartisan climate solution promoted by CCL. Many predict that If it becomes law, carbon emissions in the US will be reduced by 40% in 12 years. At the same time this revenue neutral bill with its market stimulating aspects will contribute to a better economy and healthier households in the US.
Professor Lambert is in the economics department at UofL and has recently been assigned to their equine industry programs as an applied economist. Prior to UofL, he taught full time for Northern Kentucky University in their Master of Public Administration program for several years. Before that he was with the economics department at IU Southeast for many years.
Professor Lambert has a MS in economics from UK and a PhD in urban and public affairs from UofL with a concentration in urban economics and economic development.
