Abstract: In 2013 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its latest scientific report on the state of the global climate. Annually the global mean temperatures have been rising, the number and severity of dangerous climatic phenomena have been increased (such as floods, draughts, forest fires, etc.). Preventing dangerous climate change has been proclaimed by the EU as a strategic priority since the 1980's. At present various EU governmental institutions and organizations address the climate change problem. The newly emerging legal discipline, the EU climate change law, has been rapidly developing in the past few years. The concept of climate law comprises environmental, energy, transport law and other branches of law, which function under the umbrella of climate change. This article is intended to serve as an introduction to this complex and rapidly changing field, also providing the perspective for its development until the year of 2030.
