 I'm hoping to learn more about the approach used by ISO New England to determine the discount rate used for pricing carbon's effect on the environment due to climate change. I encourage all those interested in climate change economics, uncertainty and probability distributions with climate/temperature change to watch a short 5 minute video of Marty describing his analysis ; may he rest in peace - thank you Marty for all of your brilliant contributions and Harvard University in helping us understand the risks of climate change.

Matt, it was a fantastic meeting! Lots of great discussion and debate. There is no direct support for a carbon pricing tax in Connecticut - which in my view is very positive for broader electrification of the economy because electricity will continue to remain the "affordable choice". This becomes even more important given FERC's Order 2222 annoucnement today.
