UT Energy Symposium: (Book Talk) America's Energy Gamble: People, Economy and Planet

The UT Energy Symposium is a weekly guest lecture series that is both free and open to the public and available for course credit.

Speaker: Shanti Gamper-Rabindran, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Pittsburgh

Shanti Gamper-Rabindran will discuss the major points from her new book, "America's Energy Gamble: People, Economy and Planet," which dissects the Trump administration's energy policy and how the country can return to an energy transition that benefits both the economy and the environment.How did the pro-fossil Trump administration entrench America's oil and gas dependency to the detriment of America's economy, public health and the environment? Its actions ran counter to even traditional bipartisan values of fiscal responsibility, environmental stewardship and rule of law. Despite the damage done, this book lays out how Americans can still change course and transition away from oil and gas dependency, while protecting workers and communities.
