Resources for the Future will hold a Social Cost of Carbon webinar on February 10th from 1 to 2 pm EST.
The Biden Administration is reconvening an interagency working group to oversee the process for updating estimates of the social costs of carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide, taking into account near-term recommendations from the National Academies of Sciences (NAS). The group is tasked with publishing interim estimates within 30 days and a final set of updated estimates by January 2022.
This webinar will highlight the latest SCC-related research from RFF scholars and the Climate Impact Lab. The conversation will also feature perspectives from decisionmakers using the SCC to inform policy and highlight key considerations for the Biden administration’s near-term and final updates of the estimates.
Speakers will include
- Trevor Houser, Rhodium Group and Climate Impact Lab
- Maureen Leddy, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
- Kevin Rennert, Resources for the Future (moderator)
