The Environmental Stakes in the 2012 Election
Co-sponsored by the Environmental Law Institute and the
New York City Bar Environmental Law Committee, the Center for

Often overlooked in the coverage of the 2012 elections, environmental and energy issues could be among those most affected by the elections’ results. Senior environmental litigators and policy experts discussed: the key environmental issues at stake in the upcoming elections; the impacts of those issues on the presidential race; and the environmental challenges facing the next administration and Congress.
