Using Economics to Cool the Climate Crisis

Joellen Russell and Derek Lemoine

The Office of Economic Education is pleased to join with the Thomas R. Brown Foundation to present a panel discussion on climate change.

Joellen Russell, Thomas R. Brown Distinguished Chair of Integrative Science in the UA College of Science, and Derek Lemoine, associate professor of economics in the Eller College of Management, will discuss the science behind measuring carbon levels in the atmosphere and the oceans, and the potential impact of carbon taxes on future levels. Can carbon taxes “bend the curve” of CO2? How might such a tax be administered, and how would it work?

The public is invited to this program. There is no fee, and no need to register. 

TEACHERS: If you want a guaranteed seat and a certificate for professional development hours, please register via the Thomas R. Brown Foundation.

For additional information, call the Office of Economic Education at 520-621-3495 or the Thomas R. Brown Foundation at 520-345-5300 extension 2.
