In The Public Interest - Educating The Public About Impact Of Carbon Pricing

May 21, 2018

This week on “In the Public Interest,” 89.1 WEMU’S Lisa Barry has a conversation with the League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area to talk about their co-sponsored events around town, including a recent public forum on carbon pricing, where Ginny Rogers of the Citizens Climate Lobby in Ann Arbor spoke.


Rogers talks about what it means to put a price on carbon and how that would impact people.  She says they teamed up with the local League of Women Voters in hopes of educating the public in advance of what they are hoping will be federal legislation to price carbon.
