As we gear up for reintroduction of carbon-fee-and-dividend legislation in the new Congress, we hear from economist Dr. Noah Kaufman, lead author of the 2019 Columbia University assessment of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.
The study confirmed the effectiveness of the bill from both an environmental and economic perspective. Dr. Kaufman is a research scholar at the Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia, leading research focused on climate change policies. He also teaches a course on Energy Decarbonization. During the Obama administration, he served as the Deputy Associate Director of Energy & Climate Change at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.
