Energy, Climate, and Environmental Law News
Environmental and energy laws intersect routinely with businesses, in many different niches and industries. From companies developing solar energy systems to a small business selling all-natural, organic foods, these industries collide with legislation and court precedents, and companies must be aware of the regulations impacting their businesses. Visitors to the National Law Review will come across industry news, agency news, and local legislation as well as litigation as it relates to the areas of energy and environmental law.
EPA and other Governmental Environmental Agencies and Legislation
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), the Clean Air and Water Acts, Brownfield Remediation and Redevelopment, and Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA), are agencies that the National Law Review covers. Additionally, the implications of the Endangered Species Act and implications of the changes to this long-standing legislation are analyzed by the legal experts at the National Law Review.
Alternative Energy Production
Additionally, biobased energy production and alternative energy production, including regulations, tax credits, and upcoming legislation are also extensively covered by the National Law Review. Industry developments, legal developments in the energy sector, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), and renewable energy reform and legislation, are among the topics visitors can read about online. Developments in coal, geothermal, solar, wind, hydroelectric, and natural gas both in the US and internationally are also updated on the website.
Environmental Litigation in Federal and State Courts
Many environmental issues and regulations find their way to the courtroom, as different agencies and environmental groups fight for their various interests. Litigation covering the Clean Water Act and how it is enforced, as well as litigation on CERCLA and Superfund site clean-up costs and environmental litigation brought by the Army Corps of Engineers.
Climate Change and the Environment
Climate change has been a major factor in environmental legal issues, as the impacts of climate change are felt and there is increasing public pressure for companies and governments to pay attention to its devastating effects. The National Law Review provides coverage of corporate responses to climate change, creative litigation for the benefit of children, and the responses to climate change and coverage of world agreements, like the Paris Agreement, and President Trump’s controversial withdrawal from the Paris Agreement.
