An EETD Seminar on March 12, 2013, speaker Jonh "Skip" Laitner, Senior Fellow and former Director of Economic and Social Analysis, American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE)

This brief overview will explore possible ways forward that might help correct deficiencies in current energy and climate policy assessments. My own observations since the 1992 Rio Summit (and before) suggest that, among the causes for US reluctance to move more aggressively on energy policy and climate, are economic modeling exercises which have preempted the assessment of a more robust set policy initiatives. Among the missing or miss-specified elements within economic models are critical elements in the disciplines of physics and behavioral and social psychology.
