The serious, predictable effects of climate change may generate significant change in U.S. property law. This chapter focuses on U.S. law, but hopefully offers useful insights for how climate change may affect property law in other countries. Some property law regimes are designed to accommodate change in the physical environment and therefore should actually help facilitate adaptation to modest climate change impacts. However, more dramatic climate change impacts will create pressure for major changes in existing legal regimes; the examples explored in this chapter include coastal boundary law, entitlements to the use of surface waters, and regulatory takings doctrine.
