Abstract:     
This short essay does three things. First, it provides a primer on the most recent case developments at the juncture of the climate litigation and the political question doctrine. Second, it hazards some discussion about how the Supreme Court might engage the political question issue in Connecticut v. American Electric Power Co., Civ. Action No. 10-174. It ends with some concluding thoughts about the impact that litigation has on climate policy.
