This database serves as a thematically organized repository of scientific information relevant to climate litigation and policy-making. These resources may be useful to scientists interested in understanding how their work might fit into a range of law and policy applications, to lawyers interested in understanding how existing and cutting edge science may support or undermine their cases or defenses, and to policy practitioners looking for resources to support a wide variety of climate mitigation and adaptation policies.
This database is the product of an ongoing collaboration between the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. This collaboration is led by Sabin Center executive director Michael Burger, senior fellow Jessica Wentz, and by LDEO research professor and climate scientist Radley Horton. In early 2020 they published an article, The Law and Science of Climate Attribution, which provides a comprehensive overview of attribution research and its application in legal settings.
Financial support for this project was provided by the High Tide Foundation.
