Event description

Description

The ongoing battle to reduce carbon emissions requires a complete overhaul of our current system, from the coal mine to the power plant, to the grid that delivers electricity to our homes. Pennsylvania is in the crosshairs of this debate, which will impact everything from utility bills to employment prospects, from real estate values to cleaner air. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton present two starkly different futures when it comes to energy policy, environmental protection, and climate change.

StateImpact Pennsylvania reporter Susan Phillips will moderate a panel examining their platforms, as well as developments in alternative energy, natural gas, nuclear, and coal, through a national and a regional lens. Panelists include: Christina Simeone of UPENN’s Kleinman Center for Energy Policy, former Pennsylvania DEP Secretary John Quigley and Eric Orts of the Wharton School’s Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership.

PANELISTS:

  • Christina Simeone, director of policy and external affairs at Kleinman Center for Energy Policy
  • John Quigley, former secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection
  • Eric Orts, faculty director of the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership at the Wharton School
  • Marc Montalvo, president, Daymark Energy Advisors

This program was made possible by a grant from the William Penn Foundation.
