Conflicts Over Science and Policy at the EPA: Where Are We Headed?

The Forum at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health presents a panel discussion with Wendy Jacobs, Director, Harvard Law School Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic; Gina McCarthy, Director, C-CHANGE at HSPH, and 13th Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency; William Ruckelshaus Strategic Director, Madrona Venture Group, and First and Fifth Administrator of the EPA; and Tom Udall, U.S. Senator, New Mexico. Moderated by Carolyn Beeler, Environment Reporter, PRI’s The World.

What is the status of evidence-based environmental policy in the U.S? Sweeping policy shifts, regulatory rollbacks, and decisions such as the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement prompt questions. This Forum will provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges facing environmental science today. Panelists will explore areas potentially or already impacted by change, such as the Clean Power Plan, methane rules, and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) implementation — and their public health implications. Experts will describe how the EPA and other agencies are responding and will share ideas for steps forward to nurture and protect the principles of peer-reviewed environment science.  

Presented jointly with PRI’s The World & WGBH.
