Howard Pens Opinion Piece in BDN

University of Maine philosophy Professor Michael Howard penned a column in the Bangor Daily News about the need to build political will for a climate-protecting carbon fee. Howard, a member of the Maine Regional Network that brings together scholars to address public challenges, said the U.S-China deal on carbon emissions “is a significant step in the right direction after years of impasse on global climate cooperation. It will set in motion policies that will make renewable energy more affordable and set the stage for more meaningful global climate negotiations in Paris in 2015.”
