The climate change crisis is already upon us, with flooding, mountain pine beetle epidemics, wildfires, droughts and rising sea levels threatening our communities. And unless we act it will get much worse. This is the challenge of our time.
West Coast Environmental Law proposes legal solutions that recognize the reality and urgency of this crisis. Action on climate change is not a moral choice – it is a legal and professional imperative, and our laws must reflect that.
At West Coast, we are creating a legislative framework that will allow British Columbia and Canada to do their part to protect and sustain the Earth’s atmosphere. We focus on accountability – including the accountability of our politicians, of fossil fuel corporations (see our Climate Law in our Hands initiative) and of professionals.
