Richard K. Morse - Stanford University

Richard Morse was the featured speaker at the UT Energy Symposium on November 3rd.  His talk, entitled, “Beyond Climate Policy: Reconciling Climate Change and the ‘Coal Renaissance’”, analyzed global coal markets and their relationship to climate change.

Because coal is the single largest source of global CO2 emissions, Morse argued that any attempt to combat climate change requires a strategy to address coal.  Morse argued that existing climate policy frameworks are not accomplishing this at the scale required, and suggested new frameworks to address the coal and climate challenge that can be deployed in existing energy markets with limited government intervention and support.
