Climate Change and the Economy

Exclusive Call

2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT

The question for policymakers and all other citizens is no longer whether humans are changing our climate. The question now is: How can we stabilize an already-changing climate in a way that promotes economic prosperity?

While recently established domestic policies have made strides toward a lower carbon future, such measures are stepping stones. Effectively mitigating climate change requires identifying exactly how the United States will transform its energy economy to attain international goals to help protect our climate.

The Center for American Progress and the Political Economy Research Institute have partnered on an extensive analysis and report that quantifies the level of investment required for the United States to align emissions reductions with international goals in an economically beneficial and technically feasible manner. This report analyzes critical opportunities for the investment and technology sectors to help meet climate goals and support economic growth.
