Editorial Reviews


"Global climate change poses an enormous threat to our environment. Our coastlines, surface and underground water supplies, farmlands, and forests are all at risk. Creative legal engineering will be needed to address this problem. This book, written by many of the country's leading environmental scholars and practitioners, provides an invaluable start on this process. It's a must read for any serious lawyer or policymaker in the field." -- Bruce Babbitt, Secretary of the Interior, 1993-2001, Governor of Arizona, 1978-1987

"Global Climate Change is an impressive work of legal scholarship from the ABA's Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, a collaborative effort of the most knowledgeable and experienced practitioners in the field, guided by the steady editorial hand of Michael B. Gerrard, former SEER Chair and partner at Arnold & Porter. It is supported by a very useful website to keep readers updated on related legal developments." -- The Environmental Forum, Nov/Dec 2007

"Michael Gerrard and a topflight list of authors have pulled together thoughtful, critical commentaries that can help key sectors in our society craft responses to what is surely the environmental challenge of this century - indeed, a major economic challenge as well - the earth's changing climate. Many thanks to ABA for this timely publication and Website that can keep us abreast of fast-breaking developments in this field." -- William K. Reilly, Administrator, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1989-1993

"This is a spectacular book. Offering both impressive breadth and depth in its description and analysis, Global Climate Change and U.S. Law provides the legal community with an extraordinarily useful tool for understanding the wide ranging ways that current and quickly emerging laws address what promises to be the nation's greatest environmental challenge. Wholly accessible to those not themselves expert in environmental law, any lawyer or policymaker seriously interested in the global climate change should have a copy." -- Richard Lazarus, Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center

"This volume serves as a comprehensive desk reference of legal issues related to climate change, which any lawyer or policymaker in the environmental field would find useful and informative. The book provides an outstanding overview of the field, particularly helpful for individuals seeking an introduction to climate change law." -- Sustainable Development Law & Policy, Fall 2007
