Washington State Convention and Trade Center — Seattle, WA

October 15, 2007

Climate change dominates the headlines. In response, policy makers across the country are adopting measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. While climate policies are being developed outside of the conventional framework regulating air quality, they connect and impact each other.This conference brings together leading experts to discuss emerging climate policies and recent developments in conventional air quality regulation affecting the region, and the relationship between them.

Day one highlights emerging federal, state, and local regulation of greenhouse gasses and recent developments in stationary source emissions under the Clean Air Act.

Day two focuses on the unique air quality and climate challenges posed by transportation and mobile source emissions in the Pacific Northwest, with particular attention on the impact of major road improvements, the emerging biofuels industry and clean air strategies for Northwest ports.

For attorneys, corporate managers, agency officials and consultants, this program provides the latest information on the ever-changing legal and policy framework for air quality regulation.

Kyle Danish will be speaking at this event.
