Climate Surfing: A Conceptual Guide to Drafting Conservation Easements in the Age of Global Warming

In light of the changes global warming will bring, this article creates a case for the argument that upon any easement termination, it is the holder of a conservation easement that is entitled to the appreciated value of the development rights held in abeyance by a conservation easement. It addresses conservation easement provisions that would calculate and direct such appreciated value to the easement holder and that would also prevent the landowner from receiving an unwarranted windfall.
