Do lawyers hold the key to tackling climate change? Watch the webinar next Tuesday 21 Feb

Prof Myles Allen of Oxford University will give a presentation on how climate modelling can help to establish the causality between emissions and damaging weather events. He has argued that a comprehensive liability regime might be a more effective resolution of the climate issue than centrally planned emission controls. Peter Roderick is a UK based barrister who co-founded the Climate Justice Programme (www.climatelaw.org ). He will present the event and reflect on his experience with climate related law suits in different jurisdictions. Christoph Schwarte is a Senior Lawyer at FIELD and has been working in the international climate negotiations for several years. He will focus on legal initiatives at the inter-state level - particularly the request for a legal advisory opinion by the International Court of Justice.
