Because the U.S. has not ratified the Kyoto Protocol, many may see the title Global Climate Change and U.S. Law as an oxymoron. Yet, despite the political stubbornness of the U.S. in the international arena, the law of climate change in the U.S. is vast and fast-changing. This diverse body of law is thoroughly catalogued in Global Climate Change and U.S. Law, edited by Michael B. Gerrard on behalf of the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources. This book provides an overview of all legal regimes and instruments which directly regulate or can be used to regulate greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
