Joskow, President, Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and Professor Emeritus of Economics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Joskow will focus on the causes and consequences of the recent developments in natural gas and oil production and supply, looking at the evolution of shale gas production technologies as well as issues and strategies for mitigating the environmental costs of production. He will conclude with a discussion on future natural gas supply opportunities and the overall implications of these trends for U.S. consumers, the U.S. economy, greenhouse gas mitigation goals, and global energy security. Manuel Pinho, Center on Global Energy Policy Faculty Affiliate, will moderate a discussion following the presentation. Registration is required. This event is open to press.
