Our relationship started about a month ago when we spent an evening together carpooling to a UCLA workshop on communication climate change that we both participated in. We covered: global warming, nuclear power, clean air, smart growth, globalization and the environment. But I say it is because the money we spend there cannot be spent on fixing the environment. Number two, we’ve made a terrible mess of the environment there.

DeCicco, formerly on staff at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), is now a Senior Lecturer at the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and Environment. While including all fuels under a carbon cap is necessary for an effective climate policy, DeCicco argues, it is not sufficient for addressing all fuels-related emissions. “ The “renewability shortcut ”.
