Liz Moyer of the Department of the Geophysical Sciences engages in discussion regarding Michigan's renewable portfolio standards. This Michigan Radio article collects opinions from several experts in the field, asking what the true cost of implementing the RPS policy would be. Moyer holds a moderate perspective, arguing that it will not "bankrupt Michigan" nor will it "save the world and stop global warming. It's not going to be free; it's not going to be disastrous."
