Shindell, who has testified on climate science before the U.S. Congress and the World Bank, made the case that the climate change and air pollution issues are inextricably linked, and that economic measures of the value of various energy sources (including fossil fuels and renewables) must include their externalities, including impacts to human health.

The event was presented by the Baker Institute’s Center for Energy Studies.
