Pilsen and Pollution by Senor Codo used under CC BY-SA 2.0 (Used with Creative Commons)

Carbon Tax vs. Cap and Trade? Can Oregon make polluters pay and grow jobs? How will low-income communities be affected? Where should the revenue go?

This Monday, join our senior researcher Kristin Eberhard to talk about carbon pricing options for Oregon. A wonderful panel of speakers will lay out smart climate policy solutions towards reducing Oregon’s carbon pollution. Oregon has an opportunity to be a critical leader on carbon pricing and to create an effective model for other states to follow.

  • Joining Kristin will be Jeff Renfro, senior economist at Portland State University’s Northwest Economic Research Center (NERC); Jenny Liu, assistant director at NERC; and Julia Olson, executive director and chief legal counsel of Our Children’s Trust. There will be a Q&A following the panelists’ remarks, so fire away those pending questions you have had about carbon pricing!

    • Where: University of Oregon, Willamette Hall Room 100 (map)
    • Tickets: The event is free and open to the public, no pre-registration required.
