Abstract

Climate law is developing at a time when it is recognised that environmental laws are now encompassing multiple areas of the law not traditionally understood as being “environmental” at all – including finance, consumer and insurance laws. Yet climate lawmakers and climate litigants are still very much focused on climate mitigation law – that is, using regulatory and other legal tools to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
