Sabin Center for Climate Change Law
The year in the title has finally arrived, and in Stanley Kubrick's classic film 2001:A Space Odyssey, the appearance of large monoliths marks important transitions in human civilization. In New York City, the construction, destruction and possible reconstruction of the twin monoliths of the World Trade Center also mark historical transitions. Among the things transformed with each event is our relationship to the physical environment.
