Climate Change Adaptation in Human Systemshttp://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Courses/DispForm.aspx?ID=1271Climate Change Adaptation in Human Systems1271Examines the legal challenges raised for society to adapt to the impacts of climate change.  Students will examine the confusion and inadequacy of current legal and policy structures to address new risks, and the need for alternative tools in light of rapidly changing circumstances.5343GP0|#4427383a-57bf-428f-9c22-73669c71e517;L0|#04427383a-57bf-428f-9c22-73669c71e517|Graduate;GTSet|#cbbd7cb7-f9db-41d7-8603-54518e246b51GP0|#bbf30ea9-f0ee-439f-8edf-c51d39ce0c79;L0|#0bbf30ea9-f0ee-439f-8edf-c51d39ce0c79|Environmental;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#02a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69;L0|#002a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69|Lecture;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b566

ENV5343.Ahttp://portal.vermontlaw.edu/Metacatalogs/Lists/Classes/DispForm.aspx?ID=442ENV5343.AClimate Change Adapt in Human SystemsJones,Ben<div>Most leading scientists and policymakers agree that, even if the international community acts promptly to limit future greenhouse gas emissions, levels of carbon and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will continue to rise. Future accumulations of greenhouse gases are generally predicted to produce significant environmental effects, including higher sea levels, changes in temperature and precipitation patterns, reductions in snowfall and the extent of glaciers, and increasingly intense storms. This seminar will examine the legal challenges raised by the unavoidable need for our society to adapt (at least some, perhaps a lot) to the impacts of global warming. Some of the topics covered are alternative tools for dealing with eroding coastal shores and higher flooding risks, possible strategies for relocating urban populations to higher ground, appropriate federal and state property insurance policies in the era of global warming, and techniques for reallocating water supplies in periods of shortage. More generally, the course will explore global warming adaptation as an example of how the law and legal institutions evolve in response to major social changes.</div>GP0|#9a2d07d4-17da-40e3-bd8c-df1402be379f;L0|#09a2d07d4-17da-40e3-bd8c-df1402be379f|Fall 2014-2 DL;GTSet|#ff5002fa-8399-4824-8dd4-231cdb4e3288;GPP|#938af55b-fbb1-40e4-b7f1-59a1714ca81b442
