On Tuesday, June 9th at noon Eastern, EPI Research and Policy Director Josh Bivens will hold a media teleconference to discuss new research on the employment impacts of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP), which mandates reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants.
Proposed in June 2014, the CPP instructs states to develop plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from existing fossil fuel-fired electric generating units by 2020. This rule is the most substantive U.S. regulatory undertaking aimed at mitigating global climate change.
In A Comprehensive Analysis of the Employment Impacts of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan, Bivens provides a comprehensive overview of the effects, both positive and negative, that the proposed mandated emission reductions may have on employment, and compares the composition of employment in job-gaining versus job-losing industries.
What: Press call to discuss new EPI paper, A Comprehensive Analysis of the Employment Impacts of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan
Who: EPI Research and Policy Director Josh Bivens
