dc.descriptionPresented at the Environmental justice in the Anthropocene symposium held on April 24-25, 2017 at the Lory Student Center, Colorado State University, Fort Collins Colorado. This symposium aims to bring together academics (faculty and graduate students), independent researchers, community and movement activists, and regulatory and policy practitioners from across disciplines, research areas, perspectives, and different countries. Our overarching goal is to build on several decades of EJ research and practice to address the seemingly intractable environmental and ecological problems of this unfolding era. How can we explore EJ amongst humans and between nature and humans, within and across generations, in an age when humans dominate the landscape? How can we better understand collective human dominance without obscuring continuing power differentials and inequities within and between human societies? What institutional and governance innovations can we adopt to address existing challenges and to promote just transitions and futures?

dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to provide an outline of environmental justice (EJ) issues of the CPP, specifically with respect to energy efficiency. It is one of a complement of papers sponsored by the Milano School of International Sustainability at the New School that are intended to provide an EJ review of the CPP as a foundation for understanding the opportunities and challenges for integrating equity and justice in climate policy. The catalyst for this set of papers exemplifies one of the problematic issues of climate policy in the U.S. as it has developed over the last several years. While various policy mechanisms have been extensively analyzed in terms of economic efficiency, flexibility and costs of compliance, these stand in stark contrast to only a handful of research efforts that focus on equity impacts of domestic climate mitigation policy. Our goal here is to provide a summary of the major justice/equity issues associated with the CPP specifically, and mainstream climate and energy policy generally. As such, it is not intended to be an in-depth analysis, but rather a starting point for further policy research which we hope to continue.
