Publication Date: 2013

Global Climate Change and U. S. Law - Michael B. Gerrard (Editor); Jody Freeman (Editor)
Call Number: KF3775 .G56 2014
ISBN: 1627227415
Publication Date: 2014
A vast body of U.S. law relevant to climate change has developed since publication of the first edition of Global Climate Change and U.S. Law in 2007, even while Congress has failed to pass a new comprehensive statute to address the climate challenge. This domestic legal regime, covered comprehensively in this updated volume, consists of federal greenhouse gas regulations issued under the Clean Air Act and federal energy efficiency statutes, new disclosure requirements imposed under the securities laws, as well as a variety of state and local initiatives and common law decisions by the courts. Recognizing that climate change is largely an energy problem, this edition adds a completely new section on energy regulation.
