Kevin Desharnais was quoted in the Bloomberg Law article, "Cascading Climate Calamities Target West's Water, Legal System." The article discusses the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report, which found that water scarcity amid rising air and streamwater temperatures will afflict much of North America, exacerbating biological diversity losses, agricultural productivity decline, and wildfire. The report's vision of an arid future for the West is likely to fuel the Biden administration's efforts to include a wide array of waters and wetlands under the Clean Water Act protections as waters of the U.S., or WOTUS, shared Kevin. "The IPCC report may be cited as supporting the need for a broad interpretation of WOTUS" due to water shortages, Kevin said. To read the article, click here.
