Summary

In terms of climate change law and policy, at present there are efforts underway at the state, federal, and international levels to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These efforts to reduce GHG emissions (and thereby mitigate global warming and other climate changes resulting from such GHG emissions) are generally referred to as “climate mitigation” laws and policies.

In addition to climate mitigation, however, there is increasing recognition that the global warming and climate changes resulting from past and present GHG emissions are happening now and will continue to happen for many decades to come, regardless of whether we are successful in curbing GHG emissions going forward. This recognition has led to the development of legal and policy responses to anticipate and plan for the global warming and climate changes that are taking place. Efforts to anticipate and plan for the effects of past and present GHG emissions are generally referred to as “climate adaptation” laws and policies.
