With the Atlantic hurricane season just behind us, we talk with three researchers about the legal implications of the proposals, the costs and benefits of each, and how climate change factors in.
Our guests include:
- Jim Blackburn, a professor in the practice of environmental law and co-director of Rice University's Severe Storm Prediction, Education and Evacuation from Disasters (SSPEED) Center;
- Regina Buono, an environmental lawyer, and the Baker Botts Fellow in Energy and Environmental Regulatory Affairs at the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy;
- Larry Dunbar, environmental lawyer, environmental engineer, and project manager for SSPEED.
