Sharon Rubalcava presented, "Reducing GHG Emissions -- California Forges Ahead," during the panel, "Your Client, Your Project: What You Must Know about Greenhouse Gas Regulation," October 14, 1:00-3:30pm. This conference was sponsored by the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.
In 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency achieved the completion of its initial actions to regulate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from mobile and stationary sources. Despite over eighty lawsuits filed by more than thirty-five petitioners, these rules are now being implemented, with full implementation scheduled to begin July 2011. By September 2011, all impacted entities and their lawyers will face impacts from these new regulatory programs. Sharon's panel will provide an update on the legal status of the EPA’s GHG regulations, and then focus on lessons learned from this new layer of regulation, and implications for all environmental lawyers and their clients. The panel provided an update on GHG litigation and implications for other areas of practice such as transactions and disclosures.
