Environmental history told through personal experience of a leading authority on climate change.
In the room where it happened
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Alan S. Miller has repeatedly been in the room where it happened. As a lawyer, scholar, author, and climate warrior, Miller has been in the room when and where policies on ozone depletion and climate change happened — often making a difference. His work today draws on the wisdom gained from his unique experience to offer solutions to the crisis the world faces from climate change.
Alan’s academic writing includes co-authorship of the most widely used environmental law textbook in the United States, Environmental Regulation: Law, Science, and Policy.
Alan Miller has taught courses on climate change, environmental policy, and energy issues at 9 universities in four disciplines.
Since his retirement from the International Finance Corporation at the end of 2013, Alan has continued working actively on climate change issues as an independent consultant.
Over the course of his career, Alan has spoken at dozens of national and international conferences and events on topics related to his expertise in climate policy, finance, and development.
Climate Change and Ozone Protection
Alan’s work on protecting the ozone layer began in 1978 with the Natural Resources Defense Council, leading a 12-country comparative study of responses to the new issue as background for the second international meeting of governments in Munich. Thereafter he supported Congressional appearances by the co-author of the ozone depletion hypothesis, Dr. Sherwood Rowland (a future Nobel Laureate) and initiated the first lawsuit against EPA advocating more regulation of ozone depleting compounds.
