On November 18, you'll hear from leading legal experts and practitioners who will discuss opportunities to prevent climate-driven pollution and chemical disasters through innovative legal and regulatory reforms.
CPR Member Scholar and Professor Robin Kundis Craig (University of Utah College of Law) is an expert in the law and policy of climate adaptation, the Clean Water Act, and human health. Attorney Chris Kilian, as Vice President of Strategic Litigation for Conservation Law Foundation, guides a program of citizen enforcement to protect New England’s natural resources and communities from unlawful pollution. The Foundation is working to ensure that coastal facilities, such as Shell and ExxonMobil fossil fuel terminals, address vulnerabilities to climate impacts such as sea level rise and storm surge. CPR Member Scholar and Professor Noah Sachs (University of Richmond School of Law) is an expert in regulation of toxic substances and hazardous waste and climate policy. CPR Senior Policy Analyst David Flores will moderate the discussion.
This webinar is the third in a series focused on addressing the growing threat of climate-driven chemical disaster. In the first webinar, advocates and legal scholars explore how regulatory gaps and climate impacts are compounding industrial disasters that impact water resources and communities in Virginia and the Gulf Coast. In the second webinar, environmental justice experts and advocates discuss a collaborative project to prevent chemical releases during storm surges in one New York City neighborhood.
