May 02, 2010

Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, director of the Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy, presented results of ISTPP research on air quality issues in Texas at the symposium, Atmospheric Chemistry and Air Quality in Texas: Challenges and Opportunities. Sponsored by the Center for Atmospheric Chemistry and the Environment (CACE) at Texas A&M, the symposium was held in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, April 22-23, 2010.

Dr. Vedlitz spoke on “Air Pollution and Policy Decision Making in Texas.” He presented results of a recent public survey conducted by ISTPP for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) and the Texas Department of Transportation. The survey’s findings covered Texans’ general attitudes about air quality, its ranking as a problem or concern, and support for behaviors and policies that affect air quality in the state.

Speakers and attendees at the symposium came from around the U.S. and Mexico, representing both the public and private sectors. Some of the entities and agencies represented included NASA, NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, the EPA’s National Center for Environmental Assessment, the TCEQ, the University of Texas at Austin, Rice University, UCLA, the University of Houston, the Houston Advanced Research Center, the Universidad Autonóma de Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, Aerodyne Research, and Climate & Atmospheric Research Associates.
