LexisNexis has launched its Environmental Law & Climate Change Center – "a Web resource that provides attorneys with online information and real-time expert commentary on the myriad legal issues raised by global climate change." Lexis Center at http://law.lexisnexis.com/practiceareas/Environment-Climate>
The site is not really focused on climate change, but it has a number of good general environmental resources. My favorite is the Environmental Law Practice Guide, which Mike Gerrard edits. It is relatively comprehensive -- witness the 500 pages+ of the Clean Air Act that I co-authored with my former students Scott Sauls and Ernie Lannet: Lexis ELPG Clean Air
The site has environmental law news and environmental law practice news as well as commentary by the Marten Law Group.
Some of the resources include:
