Event Description

The status of action to avert dangerous climate change is in flux in the United States and internationally. While in West Virginia vs. EPA, the Supreme Court limited the ability of the Administration to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, Congress quickly responded with the Inflation Reduction Act which is the most ambitious legislative effort to date to reduce US emissions. In this event a panel of experts will consider the changed legal and regulatory framework in the US and its implications for emissions, the extent to which the hoped-for emission reductions will reduce likelihood of dangerous climate change, how the expected climate change impacts children’s health in the US and the implications of the new American climate policies for international climate action.
