Bob Nordhaus is one of the most respected figures in US energy policy circles. He played a central role in drafting two of the pillars of current US climate efforts: Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards and Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act, the legal underpinning of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan.
On October 15, 2015, RFF hosted a conversation between Mr. Nordhaus and RFF President Phil Sharp, also a key figure in the creation of these two legislative cornerstones, as they discuss the evolution of US climate policy and its future prospects.
