NEPA and Climate Change: CEQ’s Draft Guidance
On February 18, 2010, the White House Council on Environmental Quality issued draft guidance that requires agencies to consider climate change and greenhouse gas emissions when carrying out National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews. This draft guidance joins a number of other agency initiatives that recognize the importance of climate change considerations, and has also met with mixed responses from the regulated and environmental communities. The Environmental Law Institute invites you to hear a diverse group of experts discuss the impact of the guidance, the timing of its release, and the larger questions about the role of climate change in agency planning. Teleconferencing is available for members of the press.
The Draft Guidance is located here.
