This free, public presentation delves into the scientific links between climate change and wildfires, and offers solutions to reduce the devastation and frequency of these events. The presenter and specialist in Economics and Climate Policy, Jerry Hinkle, joined forces with Dana Nuticelli, environmental scientist and climate journalist, to prepare this vital look into the peer-reviewed science and economics that shows the link between climate change and increased wildfires, and most importantly, what we can do about it.
Join us to hear Jerry Hinkle discuss the science behind the problem and the economic policies of these proposed solutions. One of the potential solutions supported by our presenter is the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763), which was re-introduced into the House of Representatives by a bipartisan team of congresspeople on January 24, 2019.
