LEXIS environmental site adds Climate Change coverage

Environmental Law & Climate Change Center

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>

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:

  • Environmental Law on
  • Energy Law on
  • Environmental Law Practice Guide
  • Treatise on Environmental Law
  • The Law of Hazardous Waste
  • Environmental Law in Real Estate and Business Transactions
  • Energy Law & Transactions
  • Insurance Coverage for Environmental Claims
  • Brownfields Law and Practice: The Cleanup and Redevelopment of Contaminated Land
  • Emerging Environmental Issues
  • Mealey's Environmental Litigation Reports
  • Environmental Briefs & Pleadings
  • Cases
  • Statutes & Regulations

    Does anybody know about this site ( ) ? I have seen other environmental sites with carbon calculators like yahoo and tree huggers, but I am wondering what the deal with is? I saw they also published a list last month of the top ten greenest cities ( ). Does anyone know if this site is better than the others? Fill me in!

    I took their carbon foot print test and it was pretty interesting, they said that I put out 4.5 tons of carbon, does anyone know about any other tests?

    As a college student in one of these cities:, I feel it is my duty to help publicize this list. If everyone in the country went and got their Carbon Footprint score from and then took just one pledge I think we could stop global warming. Not only is it fun to see where you land compared to these cites, but you can compare to your state, US etc…This tool is vital to the international fight against global warming.
