Webinar on Agriculture and Carbon Regulation Set for Dec. 17

It is expected that new international policies will offer new opportunities, as well as increasing the regulation of the coal industry and animal agriculture.

A free webinar, “Agriculture and Carbon Regulation: Do We Win or Lose?” will be held Dec. 17 from 9 to 11 a.m. The webinar is sponsored by North Dakota State University and North Dakota Alliance for Renewable Energy (NDARE).

During the webinar, experts will present the latest information on federal climate change legislation and discuss the potential impacts of the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations on green house gases.

“The event will follow an international climate change conference starting in Copenhagen next week,” says Cole Gustafson, NDSU biofuels economist and one of the presenters during the webinar. “In particular, the webinar will describe the implications of any policy changes for agricultural and energy industries in North Dakota. It is expected that new international policies will offer new opportunities, as well as increasing the regulation of the coal industry and animal agriculture.”

  • Daniel De La Torre Ugarte, University of Tennessee Agricultural Policy Analysis Center associate director
