The book begins by exploring the international climate change regime, including a detailed investigation of emissions trading and the controversial regime for reducing greenhouse gas emissions through land use and forest management practices. It also explores options for a future international agreement in light of calls to reduce emissions by as much as 80 percent. The book also addresses how other international agreements can help spur climate change mitigation or adaptation, exploring, for example, whether petitions to list World Heritage Sites as endangered due to climate change and petitions to declare climate change a violation of human rights will advance global efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The book then delves into domestic efforts to address climate change, including:
Climate Change and the Law also includes numerous class exercises, mock negotiations, and other participatory exercises designed to engage students in a lively discussion about how best to respond to climate change.
