A vast body of U.S. law relevant to climate change has developed since publication of the first edition of Global Climate Change and U.S. Law in 2007, even while Congress has failed to pass a new comprehensive statute to address the climate challenge. This domestic legal regime, covered comprehensively in this updated volume, consists of federal greenhouse gas regulations issued under the Clean Air Act and federal energy efficiency statutes, new disclosure requirements imposed under the securities laws, as well as a variety of state and local initiatives and common law decisions by the courts. Recognizing that climate change is largely an energy problem, this edition adds a completely new section on energy regulation. Additional chapters now cover cap-and-trade regimes, climate-related water issues, agriculture and forestry, and the use of non-climate international agreements to reduce emissions and address climate impacts. The final new section focuses on issues previously seen as marginal but now of growing importance: climate adaptation, carbon capture and sequestration and geoengineering. Part I: Overview and Context Part II U.S. Federal Regulation and Litigation Part III: Regional, State, and Local Actions Part IV: Energy Regulation Part V: The Next Legal Frontiers"

    As of today, Stripe isn't available in NZ yet, so I suppose you will have to use PayPal. The drawback is that Squarespace e-Commerce isn't integrated with PayPal yet, but only with Stripe. As such, you can use PayPal, but you won't be able to take advantage of certain e-commerce functions.

      Why did you use CEOreads for larger orders instead of Amazon?

      Amazon vs Apple Р an interesting comparison. For when I hit that "publish" button again. I'm on both, but Apple sales (via D2D) are minimal for nowЙ That's all for today! Have a great week! ????
