Climatic change laws and policies

Climate legislation is legislation dealing with the laws and regulations of greenhouse gas emissions. Many different pieces of climate legislation have been introduced and are being considered by legislatures around the world. Laws and congressionally approved funding have led to new programs to reduce emissions and incentives to speed the deployment of clean energy. We must immediately adopt the many legal and technological tools available today to greatly reduce greenhouse pollution. But that's only one piece of the puzzle. Deeper changes to remove structures that favor extractive, polluting industries and other forms of inequality are also urgently needed.
