More About This Textbook


This casebook examines climate change law using primary source materials, commentary and problem exercises. Climate science and policy are integrated into each section of the book. Reducing global and U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to the impacts of climate change receive approximately equal treatment. Mitigation is covered in chapters on the probable post-Kyoto regime, energy law and policy, national and state law, theory and practice of economic instruments (such as cap and trade and carbon taxes), and carbon sequestration. Adaptation is addressed in ecosystem, sectoral, regional, and human settlement chapters.)

Editorial Reviews

Pace Environmental Law Review
Climate Change Law: Mitigation and Adaptation, a sparkling new “coursebook” by an exceptionally distinguished quartet of law professors… succeeds because of the freshness of their material, the clarity of their organization, and the stimulation of informed thinking about this urgent but increasingly complex subject.

…[The authors] engage … [readers with] … readings rich in the policy choices that face lawyers and policymakers …[and] the basic science and implications of GHG concentrations for life on Earth. They … survey … existing climate change law at the international level, … economic fundamentals…[, the] complex subjects of sustainable energy, policy choices facing the United States as it struggles to break free of fossil fuel dependence, and the legal tools available at both the federal and state levels to encourage a shift to a renewable energy economy. The book concludes with discussions of … strategies and legal techniques available …for adapting to the inevitable effects of climate change, … techniques to encourage more responsible corporate conduct and local initiatives aimed at slowing climate change. The authors [conclude by considering] a broader social and international legal commitment to climate change policies that also advance overall human development.--(Stephen L. Kass, 27 Pace Environmental Law Review 619 (2010))
