ABSTRACT
The article discusses differences in the rulings of the various courts in the U.S. related to the policy of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for the emission of the greenhouse gases (GHG) in the U.S. It is mentioned that maximum litigations are held in California for assessment of climate change impacts under its Environmental Quality Act. Also, earlier the D.C Court has supported the decision of the NEPA for conduction only an Environmental Assessment.
