Attempts by states to draw up a Convention on Climate Change reflect a growing consensus that measures must be taken collectively by states to reflect the problem of major changes to the Earth's climate through increased gases emissions. Despite the important role that international law must play in the process, relatively little has been written on the legal issues and implications.;This work examines those issues and implications involved in dealing with the causes of global climate change and its consequences. The authors are all members of the International Law Association's Committee on International Environmental Law.
