Mastering Legal Matters: Navigating Climate Change—Its Impacts and Effects on Green Buildings and Trading Programs is a collection of three chapters that addresses how climate change affects human health and the environment, and discusses what is being done to reduce its current and future impacts. Contained in this unique offering are the following:
• Global Climate Change examines the factual background of climate change and its legal implications both nationally and internationally. Coverage includes discussions of greenhouse gases (GHGs); U.S. policy on climate change; the role of the Clean Air Act in regulating GHGs; climate change litigation; and regional, state, local, corporate, and voluntary efforts to address climate change.
• Green Buildings and Sustainable Development explains the concept behind green buildings, which is to increase the energy efficiency of buildings and reduce building impacts through better siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and removal. The chapter looks at green building rating systems (iincluding LEED); federal, state, and local laws concerning green buildings; and non-governmental and private green building initiatives. Practical advice for drafting green building contracts is also provided.
• Environmental Trading Programs answers the questions: What are environmental trading programs and how do they work? Briefly, these programs are being used to reduce air pollution, abate water pollution, replace critical species habitat, and achieve reductions in greenhouse gases. Along with discussing the general concepts applicable to environmental trading programs, the chapter examines the two main categories of trading programs and describes how individual environmental trading programs work.
