ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., March 15th, 2016 /3BL Media/ On March 16th, Dr. Dallas Burtraw, Senior Fellow, Resources for the Future will discuss interstate cooperation in the EPA's Clean Power Plan on Bard Center for Environmental Policy's live webinar series, National Climate Seminar. Dallas Burtraw is one of the nation’s foremost experts on environmental regulation in the electricity sector. For two decades, he has worked on creating a more efficient and politically rational method for controlling air pollution. He also studies electricity restructuring, competition, and economic deregulation. He is particularly interested in incentive-based approaches for environmental regulation, the most notable of which is a tradable permit system, and recently has studied ways to introduce greater cost-effectiveness into regulation under the Clean Air Act.

According to Burtraw, "Climate change is a global problem. The contribution of U.S. efforts are greater, in my mind, for the influence they have on the behavior of the other nations of the world than for the specific reductions that the U.S. achieves. The greater contribution is leadership in this case."
