Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law: “Tragic Legal Choices in Keeping Below Two Degrees”
Wednesday, April 6 | 5:00 p.m. | Gerber Glass Moot Court Room, Pace School of Law

Delivered by Michael B. Gerrard, director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law and Andrew Sabin professor of professional practice at Columbia Law School, this year’s Lloyd K. Garrison Lecture on Environmental Law will focus on climate change. At the United Nations climate conference in Paris in December 2015, the nations of the world decided that global average temperatures must be kept well below 2°C (3.6°F) above pre-industrial levels if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change. Achieving this goal will require a massive transformation of the world’s energy system away from fossil fuels and toward clean forms of energy. In the United States, that will involve very difficult choices about land use, environmental review, species protection, and may require changes in the way we view some of our bedrock environmental laws. But failure to do this will involve even more difficult choices. Click here for more information.
