New study finds Americans skeptical about cap-and-trade policies

A new study conducted by New Scientist magazine, Stanford University, and Resources for the Future takes a look at which climate policies Americans will likely support when costs are taken into account. During today's E&ETV Event Coverage, Jeremy Webb, editor of New Scientist, Peter Aldhous, San Francisco bureau chief of New Scientist, Jon Krosnick of Stanford University, and Ray Kopp, senior fellow at Resources for the Future discuss these new findings. The panelists analyze why Americans favor action to reduce emissions in the electricity sector over a cap-and-trade approach.
