Panel Presentation and Discussion:

JD, PhD, Climate law and history, moderator, P. Sean McDonald, Ph.D.
Program on the Environment.


What is the history of climate change? Who discovered the planet was
warming, when, and under what circumstances? And how can law, policy, and
the court system be used to respond to this existential threat? While the
industrial revolution is often invoked as the start of our climate change
woes, environmental historians trace it back to the Enlightenment. The next
riveting installment of Climate Science on Tap covers the history of the
climate change issue and how law and policy are increasingly important for
mitigating and adapting in a warming world. In particular, our panelists
will discuss the groundbreaking legal challenge of Juliana v. U.S. and
other cases moving through the courts, as well as efforts in the Washington
State legislature. Climate change not only has a complex history, but it
also has a court date, and one which may well open the next pivotal chapter
in the story of our climate.
