Recent U.S. federal court decisions, Congressional activity, state climate action, and business and citizen initiatives have all charged the political atmosphere on global warming. The 2007 Duke Environmental Law and Policy Forum symposium brings together experts to discuss opportunities and considerations for U.S. global warming policy, as well as recommended steps forward in addressing this challenge at the national level.



OVERVIEW: In Massachusetts v. EPA (April 2007), the U.S. Supreme Court held that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are subject to regulation under the Clean Air Act (CAA).  However, what regulatory approach should the EPA take under the CAA?  Our expert panelists will discuss various regulatory options and associated implications.



OVERVIEW: Many hope that Congress will soon implement a national regime to reduce greenhouse gases.  Our panelists will present innovative legislative options to address global warming, and assess political constraints on the enactment of these measures. 



OVERVIEW: Federal climate regulation approaches.  However, in the absence of federal action numerous states and regions have already begun their own climate initiatives. How can state and regional regulations be integrated into the national framework? Our panelists will tackle this complex issue and its implications.
