Episode 017 - Big Changes For Environmental Policy

Episode 017 - Big Changes For Environmental Policy

TFP017

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will make a historic down payment on deficit reduction to combat inflation, invest in domestic energy production and manufacturing, and reduce carbon emissions by approximately 40% by 2030. Although this sounds significant, it may seem like this will have a limited impact on your life. However, this is not true. So in this episode, I am going to be talking about the August 2022 passing of the IRA and how this will have lasting effects on how we as a company can implement meaningful environmental policy in the future.

Listen in as we go over the major questions doctrine and why environmental policy is such a controversial subject. You will learn why it is so important that carbon dioxide emissions can now be classified as air pollutants, how this changes the future of environmental policy in the United States, and more.
