Professor Pierce summarizes the expected effects of anthropogenic climate change, discusses the expensive and ineffective efforts that have been attempted to date to mitigate climate change, describes a more promising strategy for the future, and explains why the US must prepare to make major changes in law to adapt to some significant changes in climate that are inevitable. This paper was originally presented to the DC Bar as the 2012 Harold Leventhal Lecture.
