Will Congress’s “Climate Bill” Work?


In an August 3 article for The AtlanticRobinson Meyer argues that it will.

Called the Inflation Reduction Act, it will also be “the most significant climate bill ever passed by Congress,” writes Meyer.

Proponents of the bill say it could reduce carbon emissions by 44% by the end of the decade, largely by subsidizing “clean” energy and “[driving] greenhouse-gas pollution out of the economy.”

Andrew Dessler, Climate Scientist and professor at Texas A&M University, believes this is a necessary step in the right direction.

On Monday, August 15, Dessler will take the Soho Forum’s debate stage to defend the resolution: Climate Science compels us to make large and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. 

Taking the negative: Steven Koonin, author of Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters.

We couldn’t have picked a better moment to host this clash of views. We hope you’ll join us.
