Bradford Seminar: “When Do Environmental Markets Worsen or Improve Environmental Disparities?”

Kyle Meng, an associate professor economics and in the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at UC-Santa Barbara, will present “When Do Environmental Markets Worsen or Improve Environmental Disparities? The Case of U.S. Climate Policies” via Zoom webinar. Register online in advance to receive a webinar link.

Meng will draw upon a retrospective study on the pollution disparity consequences of California’s carbon market, and a prospective study on pollution disparities of various simulated US-wide climate policies, to explore when there is a trade-off and when there is alignment between equity and efficiency when addressing climate change in a world that is deeply unequal.

This event is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Policy Seminar Series organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and the Environment (C-PREE) in the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and co-sponsored by the High Meadows Environmental Institute (HMEI).
