The free webinar, “California’s Cap-and-Trade Law — What You Need to Know,” took place Oct. 29, 2012.

California’s cap-and-trade program to limit carbon emissions economywide kicks into high gear in 2013, and the first auction of greenhouse gas allowances is set for Nov. 14, 2012.

Tune into this hourlong session with UCLA economist Matthew Kahn on what you need to know about this new initiative, part of California’s Global Warming Solutions Act (Assembly Bill 32, or AB 32).

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Winners and losers: Among those participating in the trading program, which industries have the most to gain, or lose?
  • What can we learn from the implementation of similar laws elsewhere about where likely stories will surface?
  • What stories should journalists be watching for?
