What are laser talks?
Just as a laser is powerful and focused, a laser talk is a brief but powerful statement on a specific topic. Reading our laser talks is a great way to get informed about CCL, the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, and related scientific, economic, and political issues.
The principal audience for our laser talks are volunteers who meet with legislators and their aides, but we also expect them to be educational for other stakeholders and the general public. Laser talks are not meant to be memorized, but to provide understanding that will help you respond, in your own words, to questions you may be asked.
The laser talks are listed below under six categories: Climate Science, Impacts, Policy Design, Technology, Politics, and International.
