Barry Rabe is a political scientist who examines the political feasibility and durability of climate, environmental, and energy policy in federal systems such as the United States. He is the author of six books, including CAN WE PRICE CARBON? (MIT, 2018) and TRUMP, THE ADMINISTRATIVE PRESIDENCY, AND FEDERALISM (Brookings 2020) with Frank Thompson and Ken Wong. The latter received the 2021 Louis Brownlow Award from NAPA and prior books have received four separate awards from the American Political Science Association. Rabe is currently examining the politics of short-lived climate pollutants such as methane and HFCs in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Recent policy engagement has included a series of NAPA panels, co-chairing the Assumable Waters Committee of the US Environmental Protection Agency, and serving on the University of Michigan Commission on Carbon Neutrality.
