Seven years after the Supreme Court weighed in on climate change in the landmark case Massachusetts v. EPA, climate change is back in court. Massachusetts dealt specifically with greenhouse gas emissions from mobile sources, but the EPA subsequently determined its authority extended to stationary sources as well. Industry groups challenged the EPA in the recent case Utility Air Regulatory Group v. EPA, and both sides came away from the Court’s June 23, 2014 decision claiming victory.
Join environmental attorneys James Periconi and Matthew Jokajtys as they examine what UARG means for the EPA’s authority to address climate change.
I. Identify the major elements of the Clean Air Act
II. Recognize the EPA’s efforts to address climate change through the Clean Air Act
III. Understand the holding of UARG v. EPA in the context of current climate jurisprudence
IV. Discuss the impact of UARG on EPA’s future efforts to address climate change
