and Radiation, United States Environmental Protection Agency
In Los Angeles and across the United States, the Clean Air Act and other air-quality laws have helped to reduce conventional air pollution. Regulators are now beginning to use the Clean Air Act’s regulatory tools to address the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change, now that Congress has failed to enact new climate change legislation and the future prospects for such legislation appear dim. This conference examines the relationship between Clean Air Act regulation and climate change, from several perspectives—legal, political, principled, and practical.
