       Roger Karapin is Professor of Political Science, Hunter College and the Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Professor Karapin’s 2016 book, Political Opportunities for Climate Policy: California, New York, and the Federal Government, was published by Cambridge University Press.

       Lecture description: The Obama administration tried to assert U.S. leadership on climate policy by adopting greenhouse gas regulations for motor vehicles, power plants, and other industries, but the Trump administration systematically rolled back those policies. Will the Biden administration try to return to the Obama administration’s approach? Will it try new approaches? What are the constraints and opportunities it is likely to face?

       Professor Karapin is hosted by Evergreen’s Master in Environmental Studies program.
