Climate and Energy Topics at the Annual Fall Meeting of ABA SEER

This Wednesday Oct. 12 through Saturday Oct. 15 is the Annual Fall Meeting of the American Bar Association’s Section on Energy, Environment, and Resources (SEER) in Indianapolis.  The meeting's agenda is dominated by climate change and clean energy, with sessions on nuclear power plant regulation; climate change litigation; the social cost of carbon; greening consumer products; renewable energy on Tribal lands; NEPA & renewable energy projects; biomass regulation; coal ash regulation; mercury regulation; feed-in tariffs; hydraulic fracturing; climate risks in real estate transactions; and greenhouse gas regulation at the federal, state, and local levels. 

In the midst of so much news of anti-regulatory initiatives (in case you missed it), reading this agenda makes me feel hopeful that US law and regulation will soon be turning its attention in the right direction.
