Climate Change Report

The Congressional Research Service published a timely report in August 2013:

Climate Change and Existing Law: A Survey of Legal Issues Past, Present, and Future

This 35-page report addresses:

  • reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • liability for harm caused by climate change
  • climate change-induced water shortages
  • sea level rise and extreme precipitation
  • other adaptation responses to climate change
  • responding to and rebuilding after natural disasters
  • immigration and refugee law
You can find out more about the Congressional Research Service and sources for its reports on the Gallagher guide, Congressional Research Service Reports. For other CRS reports on climate change and other environmental issues, visit the CRS Reports section of the National Council for Science and the Environment.
