- Prof. Jonathan H. Adler, Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Business Law and Regulation, Case Western Reserve University School of Law
In 2007, the Supreme Court declared that carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are "pollutants" under the Clean Air Act. Since then, the Environmental Protection Agency has announced its intention to adopt far-reaching greenhouse gas regulations. At the same time, Congress is considering federal climate legislation. What will these new regulatory initiatives mean? What will they cost? And will they do anything to make the planet cooler or greener? Professor Jonathan H. Adler will explore these questions and consider the implications of federal climate policy.
In 2007, Professor Adler was identified as the most cited environmental law professor under age 40. His articles have appeared in publications ranging from The Harvard Environmental Law Review and Supreme Court Economic Review to the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. He is a contributing editor to National Review Online and a regular contributor to the popular legal blog, The Volokh Conspiracy (http://volokh.com).
