Professor and RailTEC Director Chris Barkan was one of four panelists invited by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Energy and Environmental Law Society to discuss legal and policy issues around the topics of transportation and sustainability. The event, titled American Transportation Infrastructure in the Climate Change Era, was held on Thursday 25 February and attracted over 50 attendees.
The panel was a conversation about how the unique features of American government, business, and law intersect with the need for alternative methods of transportation, beyond personal automobiles powered by fossil fuels. Panelists included both Illinois professors as well as industry professionals. Click here to see a flyer from the event.
