Monthly Climate Change Briefing: July 2023

July 10, 2023 5:00 pm — 5:30 pm
Webinar Only

Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. As a special service to our members, the Environmental Law Institute provides a series of monthly webinars with national experts on climate law and policy to keep you up to date and to answer your questions. Though they were previously conference calls, our Monthly Climate Change Briefings will now take place on Zoom.


Topics to be addressed in this month's briefing:

  • California v. EPA (upholding EPA's domestic aircraft emission standards)
  • Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International v. EPA (vacating aspects of EPA's HFC phasedown rule)
  • Juliana v. US -- DOJ asks District Court to reconsider order allowing plaintiffs to amend complaint
  • County of Multnomah v. ExxonMobil -- new lawsuit against fossil fuel companies and McKinsey for damages from extreme heat events
  • Recent deal between California and truck manufacturers
  • New climate law in Rhode Island
  • Pro-fossil fuel legislation in Texas
  • Article 6.4 of the Paris Agreement
  • WRI's undertaking to update its GHG Protocol
  • Continuing work in the voluntary carbon market
  • The e-liability method introduced by Profs Kaplan (Harvard) and Ramanna (Oxford) and lessons learned from its inaugural conference in late June
