Thursday – Speaker Series

9/1 @ 7:30 /CH

Hosted by: Trish Chambers

Dan Galpern

Dan serves as the general counsel and executive director of the non-profit public interest group Climate Protection and Restoration Initiative.

On June 16, 2022, Dan filed a Petition to Phase out Greenhouse Gas Pollution with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) pursuant to the Toxic Substances Control Act.  EPA is required to respond in 90-days from that filing, namely on or before September 14, 2022.

Come hear Dan address two huge questions:

(1) Is additional action on climate still needed, now that Congress passed and the President signed the “Inflation Reduction Act” — including all of its climate-related provisions?

(2) Can strong action on climate be taken under the Toxic Substances Control Act, given the Supreme Court’s June 30, 2022 decision limiting federal authority under the Clean Air Act?
