Toward a Theory of Environmental Privacy @ The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

Individuals engage in numerous activities (purchasing and driving a car, applying lawn pesticides) with environmental consequences (lifecycle product impacts, tailpipe emissions, contaminated run-off). The environmental harms occasioned by these activities are often individually de minimis but collectively significant. Environmental law largely ignores individuals as a source of environmental harms but it will be necessary to more directly address harms arising from environmentally significant individual behaviors to make progress toward sustainability, mitigate climate change, and, more generally, tackle second generation environmental challenges.

Climate Adaptation in Environmental Review @ Holland & Hart
Sep 5 @ 12:15 pm – 1:30 pm
Climate Adaptation in Environmental Review @ Holland & Hart

Climate change can impact a project directly, as when sea level rise threatens a coastal transportation project, or influence the environmental impact of a project, as when climate change is projected to further decrease or degrade a species’ habitat. How should (or must) these climate adaptation considerations be addressed during environmental review processes? In 2010, the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) released Draft NEPA Guidance on Consideration of the Effects of Climate Change and Greenhouse Gas Emissions. The draft climate guidance addresses many aspects of adaptation review , including instructing agencies how to determine which climate change impacts warrant consideration, cautioning agencies to respect the “rule of reason” when deciding the appropriate emphasis and level of detail to devote to the assessment of the impacts of climate change, and directing that climate change impacts should be incorporated into the reasonably foreseeable future condition of the affected environment. Many questions remain, however, about how to incorporate projected climate change impacts into environmental review. This talk reviews agency guidance, case law, and select environmental review documents prepared pursuant to NEPA to better understand how climate change impacts should (or must) be addressed in environmental review.

2013 World Leaders Lecture Forum with John Prendergast @ Libby Gardner Concert Hall
Sep 11 @ 11:00 am
2013 World Leaders Lecture Forum with John Prendergast @ Libby Gardner Concert Hall

The Tanner Humanities Center is proud to present the 2013 World Leaders Lecture Forum.

Please join us for a lecture by human rights activist John Prendergast, titled “A Changing Africa.” This event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required, but please arrive early for seating.

Much of the news from Africa highlights the catastrophic and the tragic with war, famine, and lawlessness dominating the headlines. Yet, many of the deadliest wars in Africa have been resolved and the transformation from war to peace and lawlessness to order now under way. In his lecture, Prendergast will focus on Hollywood images that portray Africa in a hopeless state and then reveal the sharply contrasting reality. He will also situate Africa in a historical progression that sees war as a significant factor in state formation, true in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.

John Prendergast is a human rights activist and best-selling author who has worked for peace in Africa for over 25 years. He is the co-founder of the Enough Project, an initiative to end genocide and crimes against humanity.
