Climate Change

Despite the media frenzy over President Trump's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change agreement, the withdrawal won't be effective until November 2020 at the earliest. In the interim, far from stopping the momentum for climate change commitments and concurrent interest in renewable energy options, the withdrawal has actually accelerated movement by other countries, global business leaders, and US state and local jurisdictions to continue advancing climate change efforts.

In such an actively engaged environment, clarity around climate change rules and regulations will remain at a premium. The following resources and perspectives, created and contributed to by leading Arnold & Porter attorney-thought leaders in our nationally recognized Environmental practice, address a range of both the large-scale developments and ongoing micro-actions affecting climate change-related regulatory/compliance, rulemaking, enforcement, and litigation issues.
