In an Oregonian editorial, Paul S. Wright Professor of Christian Studies Rob Kugler suggests a cap-and-dividend provision for new climate change legislation as “an antidote to the lobbyists’ power and money.”

In addition to his role as professor, Kugler served as the coordinator for Lewis & Clark’s participation in the National Teach-In on Global Warming in 2009, a day-long event involving tens of thousands of college students nationwide who engage with faculty and public leaders in dialogue about public policy solutions to stem the rise in the earth’s temperature.
