Richard Newell, president of Resources for the Future, said the seven panelists are “individually highly qualified and as a group include the appropriate diversity of scientific and economic expertise.”

Newell noted that he and Cropper co-chaired the National Academy of Sciences assessment on updating the social cost of carbon in 2016 and 2017 and she “can therefore ensure that the updated methods are responsive to that important report.”

The EPA report borrows heavily from that work.
