Climate Change Policy and Politics EU-USA
Prof. Denise Keele, Kalamazoo College, USA
The scientific consensus on the causes and consequences of climate change are clear and the target reductions in emissions for successful mitigation have long been identified. While the United States (US) has continually struggled to adopt national solutions and remains a laggard in energy and climate change policy, the European Union (EU) and specifically Germany (DE) are recognized as world leaders. Since any successful international climate policy or global environmental governance regime will require cooperative action by most countries, this talk will explore the common and disparate legal and political challenges faced by the EU and the US.
Denise Keele is Associate Professor of Political Science, jointly appointed with the Institute of the Environment & Sustainability, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan USA. Her research and teaching focus on environmental policy and law, in particular the use of the courts to influence public policy.
