Joel Schwartz, one of America’s foremost experts on air pollution, will present "Why America’s Air Quality is Better than you Think” on Thursday, Sept. 29 as part of the Lindenwood Economic Policy Lecture Series.
Schwartz is a Visiting Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., and previously directed the Air Quality Project for Reason Public Policy Institute. He has also been a public servant -- executive officer for the California Inspection and Maintenance Review Committee and a senior policy analyst in the Legislative Analyst’s Office in Sacramento.
Schwartz' most recent book is No Way Back (AEI Press). Schwartz writes, “It would be virtually impossible for anyone, no mater how tenacious or determined, to prevent continued and substantial reductions in air pollution.”
The lecture will be at 3 p.m. in the Anheuser-Busch Leadership Room of the Spellmann Campus Center.
