Following a turbulent transition and in the midst of a global pandemic, Joseph R. Biden was inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States on January 20, 2021. In its first year, the Biden Administration prioritized climate and environmental justice initiatives through executive actions, legislation—including the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—and international agreement at the 2021 Conference of the Parties in Glasgow. On January 20, 2022, ELI convened experts for an exploration of the Administration’s environmental first-year accomplishments and setbacks, as well as the opportunities and challenges that remain. This Dialogue presents a transcript of that discussion, which has been edited for style, clarity, and space considerations.

Adler is Director of the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law and Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
