Regulation of greenhouse gases is moving forward in the United
States, with the most prominent efforts underway on at least two
separate tracks. California is implementing A.B. 32 and related
legislation while the federal government is moving forward with
greenhouse gas regulations under the Clean Air Act. This practitioners’ workshop highlights recent legal developments in
both areas and investigates how this system of dual regulation will
unfold. What are the pitfalls, synergies, and uncertainties of climate
regulation developing in these two different ways?
