Wohlstetter Conference Center, Twelfth Floor, AEI 1150 Seventeenth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036
About This EventThe Senate is considering mandating sharp cuts in emissions of four air pollutants from power plants--nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, mercury and carbon dioxide. President Bush is likely to support stringent cuts in all but carbon dioxide. Is there a better way to achieve the same environmental goals? Experts will debate the economic, environmental and legal ramifications of different policy approaches.
