The Obama administration tried to assert U.S. leadership on climate policy by adopting greenhouse gas regulations for motor vehicles, power plants, and other industries, but the Trump administration systematically rolled back those policies.  Will the Biden administration try to return to the Obama administration’s approach?   Will it try new approaches?  What are the constraints and opportunities it is likely to face?


Roger Karapin is a Professor of Political Science at Hunter College and the CUNY Graduate Center. His recent book, Political Opportunities for Climate Policy (Cambridge University Press), won the American Political Science Association’s Caldwell Prize for best book on environmental politics and policy. He has published widely on climate change policy and renewable energy policy in the United States, Germany, and Canada. Join him for a discussion of climate change policies in the Biden administration.
