Summary
"This CLI policy paper argues that we will not be able to recalibrate the law of humans with the laws of nature unless we explicitly recognize the accountability of one generation to the next. Carbon buildup in our atmosphere occurs over generations and so requires new legal principles that recognize this intergenerational connection among human socieities. We must develop new legal principles to articulate the rights and corresponding duties that underpin intergenerational equity, and develop new ways to use law to translate ethical norms into practice."--page 14
