How Carbon Neutral is Bioenergy?
The IPCC (2006) has supported the view that wood biomass is “carbon neutral” in that its use for bioenergy has zero net carbon emissions since the emissions released in its utilization for energy are subsequently captured in forest regrowth. This generally accepted view, however, has recently come under increasing criticism from various sources.

Greenhouse Gas Regulation for Power Plants under the Clean Air Act
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may soon propose Clean Air Act rules regulating the largest class of greenhouse gas emitters: coal-fired power plants. With climate policy off the congressional agenda, these and other rules under the act have taken center stage in the formulation of U.S. policy for limiting carbon emissions. But what will the rules for coal plants look like? Research at RFF and elsewhere over the past year has aimed to both understand what EPA may do and provide input into the agency’s decisionmaking process. This RFF First Wednesday seminar presented some of the results of this research, along with a broader discussion of the Clean Air Act as a pathway for climate policy.

Pairing these findings with analysis of existing state and federal policies and voluntary industry actions will lead to recommendations for how to improve the management of shale gas development.

Trade and Sustainability of Forest Products: Global Challenges and Opportunities
International buyers of forest products know the importance of identifying sustainable and legal sources—they also know this is challenging in today’s complex global markets. Around the world, private and public procurement policies are focusing on ways to eliminate illegal fiber from supply chains. This includes a shift from voluntary to mandatory government regulations, such as the amended Lacey Act in the United States and the European Union Timber Regulation. At this RFF First Wednesday seminar, panelists looked at the impacts of this critical international issue, the changing regulatory regime, and some of the tools available to help buyers avoid illegal forest products. They explored the role of third-party forest certification in forest trade and previewed the Forest Legality Alliance’s new risk information tool.

American Public Opinion on Climate Change and Its Impact on Voting in Congressional and Presidential Elections
In recent years, observers have speculated that the American public has become increasingly skeptical about the existence and potential threat of climate change and that the public desire for action by government on this issue has declined.

In addition, Krosnick presented the results of a new study examining whether candidates' positions on climate change policy have influenced their electoral success.

Can Creative Financing Programs Close the Energy Efficiency Gap?
Many energy experts and policymakers puzzle over the so-called "energy efficiency gap," or "energy paradox"—the fact that homeowners and businesses fail to undertake investments that appear to more than pay for themselves in future energy savings. At this RFF First Wednesday seminar, four panelists discussed the role that financing can play in improving the energy efficiency of buildings. They addressed opportunities for private financing of energy efficiency investments and analyzed barriers that exist in private markets. They also described recent government loan programs and credit enhancements, many established with federal government stimulus funds, and evaluated their performance to date. Additionally, speakers offered their insights on the importance of financing as a tool for closing the energy efficiency gap.

Managing Extreme Events in Our Rivers and Coastal Areas: Reflections on the Dutch Approach
In the Netherlands, water management is a daily activity. Without dikes and coastal dunes, close to two-thirds of the country would be under water. Building on centuries of water management, the Netherlands has recently adopted a policy of "Room for the Rivers" as part of a new Delta Programme to improve flood risk management in the face of a changing climate. What have the Dutch learned from their long history in managing water and their new flood policies? Can their experience offer any lessons for the United States?
