Environmental attorney and Earthjustice President Trip Van Noppen '80 presented a talk, "Climate Change: Where Law and Politics Intersect," at UNC School of Law Nov. 25 to a capacity audience of more than 100 people. Co-hosted by the UNC Center for Law, Environment, Adaptation and Resources (CLEAR) and UNC's Institute for the Environment, Van Noppen discussed how to affect major change in federal environmental policy, the complex politics that are involved in affecting change, and how one person who wants to make a real difference can truly do so.

Van Noppen leads the Earthjustice staff, board and supporters to advance its mission of using the courts to protect the environment and people's health. Before his time with Earthjustice, Van Noppen worked in a litigation practice emphasizing civil rights, employment, environmental and toxic tort cases and directed the Southern Environmental Law Center's Carolina's office. He is also a former member of the UNC Institute for the Environment Board of Visitors.
