Event Details

In his State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to pass legislation this year to limit greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the effects of climate change. But what are the prospects for legislative action—or executive action from the White House—this year? If so, what might it look like? And what effect, if any, will the resulting policies have on reducing carbon emissions and improving the environment? We'll explore those questions—and the policy climate in Washington—with a panel of leading experts, including:

Carol Browner, former administrator, Environmental Protection Agency
Coral Davenport, Energy & Environment Correspondent, National Journal
Mark Templeton, Director, Abrams Environmental Law Clinic; assistant clinical professor of law, the University of Chicago Law School
Michael Hawthorne (moderator), environment reporter, Chicago Tribune
