Climate Change: What Is To Be Done? 5/12/10

Efforts to address climate change through international negotiation in Copenhagen and legislative action in Congress have encountered significant difficulties, but some remain hopeful that progress can still be made. Meanwhile, EPA is moving forward with several rulemakings that would regulate greenhouse gases under existing provisions of the Clean Air Act, and the courts have decided several climate change cases seeking injunctive relief and damages from greenhouse gas emitters. This program will examine whether there is a path toward sensible collective action on the international front, the shape of EPA regulation and Congressional deliberations, and the evolving role of the courts in addressing climate change matters.
