Dean’s Forum | Unpacking the New Climate Law: Attending to Environmental Justice

January 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The federal Inflation Reduction Act signed by President Biden in August includes some of the most dramatic and ambitious federal investments to address climate change ever passed by Congress. While there are a range of provisions, including tax credits for solar and wind energy, amendments to the Clean Air Act, new authorization for loan guarantees, and investments for coast resiliency, specific resources also are targeted for “environmental justice.” In this Dean’s Forum, we will delve into this growing area of research and action and consider the adequacy of this new federal investment for addressing the historic inequities in environmental risks and consequences for racial groups and communities.
