To help answer these questions we’ll be joined by panelists Calla Ostrander, who helped start Aspen’s municipal carbon-credit system, the first of its kind in the country, and Paul Chesser, of the John Locke Foundation’s “Climate Strategies Watch.” Brad Jones (Face The State) will act as Moderator.
