There are seven types of legal approaches which can be employed by different levels of government to cool global warming. Application of these strategies, singly or in various combinations, will have an important effect on the interaction between climate change and regional water resources management strategies. The seven kinds of law are: (1) adjudication, (2) allocation, (3) appropriation, (4) regulation, (5) direction, (6) taxation, and (7) criminalization.
