Combating Climate Change On the Regional Level: West Coast Policy and Litigation
On October 19th, 2007, the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation and the Bowerman Center for Environmental Law presented the symposium "Combating Climate Change On the Regional Level: West Coast Policy and Litigation."
Oregon, Washington, and California are all implementing state and local level regulations and policies to address climate change. Will these states be successful? This symposium addressed this important question with panels exploring the West Coast's approach to climate change issues through market mechanisms, regulation, and litigation. Participants included include policy-makers, attorneys, activists, students, business leaders, and the general public interested in our region's attempts to slow, stop, reverse, and address impending climate change and the problems it will cause in our region.
