Climate Change and the Voiceless

Presentation from Randall Abate

The Environmental and Energy Law Program at GW is bringing Professor Randall S. Abate from Monmouth University to discuss his book, Climate Change and the Voiceless: Protecting Future Generations, Wildlife, and Natural Resources. This presentation first identifies the common vulnerabilities of the voiceless in the Anthropocene era. It then proposes how the law can evolve to protect their interests more effectively through a stewardship-focused and rights-based system derived from the mandate inherent in the concept of sustainable development.
