On Wednesday, DB Climate Change Advisors, an arm of Deutsche Bank, issued a report titled “Growth of U.S. Climate Change Litigation: Trends & Consequences” written by Prof. Michael Gerrard, director of CCCL. This report was subsequently featured in the New York Times and widely discussed elsewhere.

As the report and the blog post state, climate change-related litigation, particularly litigation challenging EPA regulation of greenhouse gas emissions, has recently increased and is expected to continue to grow. In addition to writing the report, Prof. Gerrard provided the two charts on page 6 of the report, based on research by CCCL and Arnold & Porter, as seen in the U.S. Litigation Chart on the CCCL website.
