Climate Crisis and The Rule of Law
With Dan Galpern, CPR Initiative General Counsel & Executive Director
Hosted by Penn Sustainability Consulting & the Environmental Law Project at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School
Join us September 20, 2023 for an insightful guest lecture (and lunch!) hosted by Penn Sustainability Consulting and the Environmental Law Project at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School that will delve into the heart of a growing national discourse:
What more should the US do to address the climate crisis?
General Counsel and Executive Director of CPR Initiative Dan Galpern will unravel the complexities facing President Biden’s response to mounting pressure to declare a National Climate Emergency, delving into the legal and political risks inherent in invoking emergency powers to address the climate crisis. Galpern will also propose an innovative path forward, leveraging existing federal law, including §§6 and 7 of the Toxic Substances Control Act, to boldly confront the climate crisis. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage and take action on one of the most critical challenges of our time.
