“The Rule of Five: Making Climate History at the Supreme Court,” With Richard Lazarus

Harvard Law School professor Richard Lazarus will talk about his recently published book on the Supreme Court’s historic ruling in Massachusetts v. EPA in 2007 that the EPA has the authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act and that those injured by climate change have standing to challenge government inaction in federal court. Based on interviews with all the parties, and with judges and justices, the book tells the inside story of how an unlikely team of lawyers and climate activists overcame EPA and industry opposition — and their own divisions — to win the most important environmental case ever brought before the Supreme Court.
