|At Law Review Symposium, a Provocative Question:
Who Pays for Damages of Global Warming?
| 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
This year, President Bush addressed global climate
change in his State of the Union for the first time, shifting the
debate from whether global warming exists to how to deal with
it. Across the country, climate change regulations and lawsuits
have been heating up at the state level. Though no federal laws
or regulations currently exist, nine eastern states have joined the
Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative and the state of California
made history last September when it brought a lawsuit against
six major car manufacturers.
