Join the discussion in Halt the Harm Network to connect with experts and explore further information on this topic.

As you’ve likely heard, the Supreme Court’s recent ruling on West Virginia v. EPA stands to limit the federal EPA’s ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and meet national climate goals.

But by how much? And what options does the ruling leave open? To answer these questions and shed light on the consequences of the Supreme Court’s decision, ORVI assembled a panel of legal experts for an advocacy-focused discussion and Q&A.

ORVI Executive Director Joanne Kilgour moderated a discussion on the legal and practical climate implications of the ruling with Jamie Van Nostrand, Director of the Center for Energy and Sustainable Development at the West Virginia University College of Law, Robert B McKinstry, Jr., a decorated environmental lawyer and co-founder of Ballard Spahr’s Environment and Natural Resources Group and Climate Change and Sustainability Law Initiative, and Miranda Leppla, director of the Environmental Law Clinic within the Milton and Charlotte Kramer Law Clinic at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
