Join the Harvard Environmental Law Society and the National Lawyers Guild HLS Chapter for a speaker event with Ted Hamilton, co-founder of the Climate Defense Project, to discuss his new book Beyond Fossil Law: Climate, Courts, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future. The Climate Defense Project is a leading advocate of the climate necessity defense, an argument for the legal justification of nonviolent civil disobedience against fossil fuel infrastructure to avert climate and pollution related harms.
Beyond Fossil Law explains how financial interest, colonial power, and outmoded legal ideas block efforts to prevent global warming, and how climate activists are fighting back.
