On Tuesday, October 9, professors Manuel Pastor and James Boyce will discuss their findings from the report, Cooling the Planet, Clearing the Air: Should Climate Policies Give Extra Credit for Maximizing Short-term Health Benefits?. This groundbreaking report is the first national level study that takes a careful look at the potential to reduce air pollution as part of our strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The report argues that a reduction in GHG in one location could improve health in other heavily-polluted communities. Additionally the report recommends policymakers include GHG reduction in climate change decisions. Read the report.
