Description: Amid the string of powerful hurricanes that have decimated the Caribbean and the Southern US and more than 4 thousand fires immolating the American west, what does US environmental policy look like at this moment other than the ante chamber to catastrophe? This lunch briefing will cover three central areas: climate change, fire policy, and EPA strategy. Susanna Hecht will briefly outline how the resistance to the attack on environmental institutions and the underlying science is being countered in various forms of legal, political and popular forms of practices from C40 (global cities and their responses) to localities rethinking disaster response.
