This lecture is part of the David Bradford Energy and Environmental Seminar Series, organized by the Center for Policy Research on Energy and Environment. The seminars highlight scholars and practitioners from various fields working on critical research related to science policy. We invite speakers to share new research they are working on, focusing on important policy-relevant issues. Since its inception in Fall 1999, this series has hosted many speakers who are influential in science & environmental policy. Attendance by Princeton students, faculty and staff is encouraged.
