Monthly Climate Change Briefing: April 2022

April 11, 2022 5:00 pm — 5:30 pm

Staying on top of the legal and policy developments in the climate change arena is no small task. As a special service to our members, the Environmental Law Institute provides a series of monthly conference calls with national experts on climate law and policy to keep you up to date and to answer your questions.


Topics to be addressed in this month's call:

  • State level developments on solar PV credits
  • Transportation emission reduction efforts
  • Fossil fuel divestment
  • Use of funding from the federal infrastructure bill
  • Ukraine crisis and its impact on US climate and energy policy
  • Baltimore v. BP P.L.C. (4th Circuit) -- Remanding case against energy companies for climate damages to state court
  • 350 Montana v. Haaland (9th Circuit) -- Finding that Department of Interior violated NEPA in finding that impacts of a coal mine's expansion on greenhouse gas emissions would be insignificant
  • Louisiana v. Biden (5th Circuit) -- Stayed district court's preliminary injunction barring use of Social Cost of Greenhouse Gases
  • Exxon Mobil v. Healey -- Affirmed dismissal of Exxon's challenge to New York and Massachusetts investigations of alleged deceptive speech about climate change
