Kate Konschnik, director of the Nicholas Institute's Climate and Energy Program, will describe the overlapping environmental authorities of U.S. federal agencies and how these institutions work together (or don’t) on far-reaching challenges, as well as unforeseen disasters. Konschnik will use two examples as jumping-off points for her discussion:

  • Interactions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division, in the drafting and defense of EPA's Endangerment Finding
  • Interactions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Department of the Interior, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Department of Commerce, NOAA, during the Deepwater Horizon disaster
