About the Event

Please join Resources for the Future (RFF) for the Washington, DC, book release of Yoram Bauman’s The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, published by Island Press.

Using information from the most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, Yoram Bauman, "the world's first and only stand-up economist," will provide a unique and entertaining overview of climate science, predictions, and policy. He’ll cover everything from Milankovitch cycles to carbon taxes and will break down complex science and economics with accessible comparisons—not to mention some good jokes—to convey a practical understanding of climate change.
