The legal regimes governing biotechnology and climate change took shape at approximately the same time, but for their first twenty years the two were viewed as independent of one another, with few if any areas of overlap. But in the years since, their potential areas of interconnection have started to grow. And within the last few years, the interconnections have come even more strongly into focus, but with only modest recognition in the legal literature. This Article seeks to set forth the ways in which biotechnology might affect, compound, and/or ameliorate the problems posed by climate change. The Article urges further attention to all of these possibilities.
