The UNC Institute for the Environment, in partnership with the School of Law, is hosting Ambassador C. Boyden Gray for a special lecture on October 4.  Ambassador Gray is a Harvard graduate and UNC School of Law alumnus who has served the United Nations as Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy Diplomacy and former Special Envoy for European Union Affairs. Earlier in his career, Ambassador Gray was a principal architect of the 1991 Clean Air Act Amendments while serving as Counsel to President Bush. He is widely credited with having triggered the use of market-based incentives in connection with the phaseout of Chloro-Fluoro-Carbons under the Montreal Protocol, leading to the use of these types of incentives in the widely supported proposal of a cap-and-trade system for the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. His talk, “The evolution of market-based pollution solutions in the United States”, will offer the Ambassador's unique perspective on the proposal, development, and challenges of a federal cap and trade system to limit the emission of various pollutants.
