Climate Regulation Without Congressional Action

Posted on October 8th, 2010 by Jason James

Despite passage of Waxman-Markey in the House on June 26, 2009, failure of Kerry-Lieberman in the Senate and likely Republican gains in the upcoming elections means climate legislation is on hold until 2013 at the earliest. In response, proponents of climate regulation have largely turned to the EPA, the courts and the states during this interim period. Prof. Gerrard’s latest article in the New York Law Journal investigates each of these options. It can be read here.

On Oct. 11, 2010, from 7-9 p.m., Columbia Law School will host a program, “U.S. Climate Policy in the Context of Congressional Paralysis,” at which many of the issues discussed in the column will be discussed.
