Climate change legislation and regulations now making headlines will impact the economy, consumers and agriculture when they are enacted. To help you better understand the proposed policy and its expected implications for agriculture, Iowa State University Extension will offer a statewide Webinar on Monday, Feb. 1, starting at 7 p.m.  The webcast is organized in collaboration with ISU's Biobased Industry Center.

“While the policy details are far from finalized, we can surmise the likely implications for agriculture in the policy alternatives being discussed,” says Chad Hart, Iowa State University Extension economist.

The two hour ISU Extension webcast will feature leading economists in energy economics and agricultural policy. These economists have studied the cap-and-trade policy, modeled the effects on agriculture and testified before Congress about the expected impact on crop and livestock costs and returns.
