    Program Topic: Analysis of Obama Administration New Rules on Carbon Pollution

    Key Discussion Points:
    a) Earlier this week, the Obama administration announced proposed carbon pollution standards, they say, will cut national emissions by 30%, from 2005 levels, by 2030. Rules would be finalized in June 2015.
    b) Janet Redman, director of the Climate Policy Program at the Institute for Policy Studies, gives analysis on the discrepancy in individual state reduction requirements, the allowance of cap and trade, offsets and other controversial means to meet requirements and the lack of federal oversight.
    c) Redman also speaks to these rules in the context of international climate negotiations at the IPCCC, and on the climate meeting UN Secretary General Ban KI-moon is convening in NYC in September.
