In 2014, the EPA, under President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, proposed a commonsense approach to cut carbon pollution from power plants. The Clean Power Plan, according to the EPA, seeks to maintain an affordable, reliable energy system, while cutting pollution and protecting our health and environment. Critics are afraid that is will negatively impact our economy, energy security and grid reliability.
To discuss the Clean Power Plan, we have with us today Dr. David Spence.
As a professor at the University of Texas, David, as he puts it, works at the intersection of law, politics and energy.
He teaches Law, Politics & Regulation at the University of Texas at Austin at both the McCombs School of Business and the School of Law.
David is Co-Director of the Energy Management & Innovation Center at UT’s McCombs School of Business and is co-author of the leading energy law casebook, Energy, Economics and the Environment
