Scaling Wind, a new documentary @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

A Wallace Stegner Green Bag with Edwin Stafford

SCALING WIND is a half hour documentary that addresses the primary barriers to America achieving 20% of its electricity generation from wind energy. Drawing from the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2008 report, “20 Percent Wind Energy by 2030″ (www.20percentwind.org), the film profiles people working to overcome the challenges facing achievement of the 20% vision, including the need to modernize and expand the power grid and smarten the nation’s energy policy for a stable market.

Produced in partnership with The Center for the Market Diffusion of Renewable Energy and Clean Technology at Utah State University: http://huntsman.usu.edu/cleantech/

Downtown CLE: Clean Water Act @ Parr Brown
Feb 26 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Downtown CLE: Clean Water Act @ Parr Brown | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Where Are We on WOTUS (Waters of the United States)?
The Agencies, the Congress, the Lobbyists, and the Commenters on the Future of the Clean Water Act
On April 21, 2014 — almost 8 years after the U.S. Supreme Court’s three-way split on Clean Water Act jurisdiction in Rapanos v. United States — the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposed a new regulatory definition of “waters of the United States.” This proposed rule has now been the subject of much comment, protest (especially by agriculture), interpretation, and — with the December 2014 budget — congressional modification. This CLE will briefly review the Supreme Court cases that made a new definition necessary, walk through the proposed rule, its relation to Clean Water Act jurisdiction more generally, and recent congressional action that affects it, and briefly review some of the claims about the rule that are being made, especially as it applies to agriculture.

Registration required.
