Western Michigan University Political Science Professor Paul Clements says he agrees with Nobel Prize winning economist William Nordhaus that a carbon tax is needed to address climate change. But Clements says Nordhaus’ proposal is inadequate.
Clements will be part of a panel discussion at Western Michigan University – The True Cost of Climate Change and its Policy Implications. It begins at 2:00p.m. Friday afternoon February 15th in Room 3508 of Knauss Hall. Clements says the Yale University professor is an influential climate change economist. But he says Nordhaus has been throwing “cold water” on the urgency needed to address climate change.
