Students help pass climate bill into law

On Aug. 2, Gov. Lincoln Chafee ’75 P’14 P’17 signed the Resilient Rhode Island Act of 2014 into law — a climate change bill that had originally been drafted by Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology, J. Timmons Roberts, 15 Brown students and a group of consultants.

The law’s main goals are to reduce the state’s carbon emissions and to adapt to the consequences of climate change by creating the EC4, or the Executive Climate Change Coordinating Committee.
