How do you figure? The Social Cost of Carbon, Planet Philadelphia 4-5:00 p.m. today Print E-mail


Tune in to Planet Philadelphia
4-5:00 p.m. today!

The social and environmental harm pollution causes hasn't generally been taken into account in decisions about how to structure our society. Planet Philadelphia guests today tell us how they hope to change the old way of doing business. Our interviews explore why the SCC, its calculation and its amount are important. As examples, would a higher cost of SCC persuade decision makers to lower air pollution, support alternatives to fertilizer, use greener electricity, or conserve natural habitats?










Dr. Tamma Carleton: is a professor at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management of the University of California Santa Barbara.  She is the co-author of a recent working paper “Updating the United States Government’s Social Cost of Carbon” to be published in a forthcoming book of energy and environmental policy proposals of the Energy Policy Institute of the University of Chicago.  She will discuss the importance of the SCC and a two-step process to return the United States government’s SCC to the frontier of economics and climate science.












Dr. Richard Bradbury: is the head of the “people conservation science” team at the Centre for Conservation Science of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) and honorary research fellow at Cambridge University.  He will discuss research on the economic value of intact ecosystems and the economic benefits of protecting nature – calculations which rely, in part, on the social cost of carbon.

Listen Up! Wednesday 04/28: The Key To Science Is Progressive Rock Print E-mail
Wednesday,  April 28, the Listen Up! program is dusting off recordings that fall into the category of Prog Rock. Lots of windswept guitar histrionics, gushing keyboards, lyrics full of mystical allusions and song and album titles bearing no relation to the music and almost as long as the music itself!
