PRS Students Testify Before the Bi-State Upper Valley Sierra Club

On May 11, 2011, four students from the Policy Research Shop at the Rockefeller Center were the invited guests for the bi-monthly meeting of the Bi-State Upper Valley Sierra Club comprised of citizens from both Vermont and New Hampshire interested in environmental justice issues. The students, Alexi Pappas ’12, Lindsay Brewer ’13, Marissa Greco ’12, and Zachary Schwartz ’11 presented the results of an analysis of carbon tax implementation strategies, reviewing New Hampshire’s current energy policies as a part of a comprehensive climate change plan. Engaging with case studies where carbon taxes were implemented at the producer and consumer level, the students demonstrated ways a climate tax could be designed and effectively utilized in a New Hampshire setting.
