Externalities in Action: Air Pollution, Public Health, and Environmental Justice in Houston
Sunday, February 28, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join Paige Powell, Development Director at Air Alliance Houston, as she discusses the impacts of air pollution on physical health, quality of life, and economic prosperity. In her talk, Paige will consider:
• What is the “right” amount of air pollution for a healthy and prosperous society?
• What are the true costs of doing business measured by the Triple Bottom Line?
• What are the socioeconomic implications of racial inequity and environmental injustice?
• How can the Houston economy continue to thrive through the energy transition and beyond?
Paige will provide information on Houston’s air pollution, its related health impacts, and those disproportionately impacted to provide thought-provoking responses to these questions.
While she will address this topic from a Houston perspective, these questions are relevant for everyone, everywhere. Time will be provided for discussion with the audience after Paige’s talk.
