Latin Rutgers-Newark Law Professor Urges Adoption of “Clean” Technologies Over Emissions-Reduction Plans. In his new book Climate Change Policy Failures, CECI affiliate Howard Latin challenges the conventional wisdom of most climate policymakers and environmental groups by arguing that greenhouse gas emission reduction programs are largely ineffectual because such programs adopt a multi-decade emission reduction strategy and postpone major cuts far into the future they have “virtually no chance of achieving genuine climate change progress.” Instead, Latin argues for “a ‘clean’ replacement technology approach,” which would rely on implementing as many greenhouse gas-free technologies, processes and methods as quickly as possible and in as many sectors of the economy as possible. You can hear Professor Latin discuss themes from his book at the October 12th seminar "Climate Policy Failures: Running out of Time" sponsored by our sister initiative the Initiative on Climate and Society.
