Yoram Bauman

PhD., Author, The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change

Yoram Bauman is educating audiences through laughter. As the world's first (and only) stand-up economist, he'll typically spend 45 minutes making people laugh and 10 minutes advocating for an environmental tax reform called carbon pricing. Implementing carbon pricing is one of Bauman's primary goals, along with reforming economics education. To that end he co-authored The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change, a hilarious overview of climate science, predictions, and policy.

Bauman earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Washington in 2003. He played a role in creating and promoting the current carbon tax in British Columbia.
