Shelley Saxer (Pepperdine) & Carol Rose (Arizona) have posted A Prospective Look at Property Rights (George Mason) on SSRN. Here's the abstract:
Saxer, along with Professor Carol M. Rose, discuss a collection of
articles that was first presented at the 2013 Association of American
Law Schools Joint Program of the Property Section and Natural Resources
and Energy Law Section. The collection represents several views about
how the relationship between the environment and property rights may
develop, and how some of the biggest issues we will face may alter
property rights, as we currently understand them. The impact of
technology on environmental concerns and the challenge of climate change
are just two of the issues presented in the papers.
The collection includes the following articles: (1) Professor Maxine Burkett’s, "Duty and Breach in an Era of Uncertainty: Local Government Liability for Failure to Adapt to Climate Change", (2) Professor Steven J. Eagle’s, "A Prospective Look at Property Rights and Environmental Regulation", (3) Professor Timothy M. Mulvaney’s, "Foreground Principles" and, (4) Professor Troy A. Rule’s, "Property Rights and Modern Energy".
