  • Regulating Climate Change

    October 30, 2013

    The Frank J. Guarini Center on Environmental and Land Use Law brought together a panel of experts to discuss the October 15th Supreme Court decision to review only a narrow issue in an expansive DC Circuit Court decision on greenhouse gas regulation. The group examined the implications of the decision and the general consensus view that it will have little effect on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to regulate climate-altering pollution from both stationary and mobile sources. Also to be discussed are the real-world consequences for greenhouse gas controls, and—in leaving EPA’s endangerment finding in place—the ability for the EPA to proceed with its ambitious program for controlling greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
