WEBINAR: The United States and Climate Change - Mitigation and Adaptation through Existing Federal Environmental and Natural Resources Laws

1-9-2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

It’s easy to accuse the United States of doing little to address climate change: The Federal government has yet to enact comprehensive climate change legislation, embrace enforceable national goals for greenhouse gas emissions reductions, or create a national climate change adaptation strategy. Nevertheless, Federal agencies, Federal courts, and citizens and environmental organizations have been evolving existing environmental and natural resources laws to address and cope with climate change. This webinar will provide an overview of several existing Federal statutes–the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and others–and discuss how agencies and citizens are using them to both mitigate and adapt to climate change.
