Podcast: Resources Radio - 40 Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, with Daniel Esty


This week, host Daniel Raimi talks with Daniel Esty, a professor of environmental law at Yale University and a board member at RFF. Esty talks about a book he recently edited, A Better Planet: Forty Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, which asks environmental leaders from diverse backgrounds to offer their best ideas for resolving our climate challenges. Reflecting on best practices from history and envisioning novel ideas for the future, Esty describes how a wide range of solutions—from innovation in clean energy to carbon pricing—is needed.

Professor Daniel C. Esty sits down with YCELP Research Assistant Lucy Kessler to discuss his new law review article and his argument for a 21st century approach to environmental law that builds on the successes of the 20th century command-and-control approach but integrates advances in data and information and incorporates lessons learned from the private sector.
