“EPIC’s leading scholars and rigorous research on the economics of climate change have played a critical role informing decision makers and the broader public about the realities of climate change. They have also shaped my own reporting over the years, so I look forward to continuing to learn from them and to working together to help advance the climate conversation.” – Justin Worland
