At the heart of the previous chapters lie the twin issues of change and continuity induced by climate change, and illustrated through theoretical notions of land use planning and practical cases of land use impacted by often unsurprising and yet sometimes unanticipated changing environmental conditions. Even though climate change is an ongoing process that might not yet have reached its climax, we are concerned to judiciously garner trends and then extrapolate how property rights and land use are affected by climate change. Moreover, the book explored ways to deal with - or intervene in - property rights under changing environmental conditions. See, for example, the Old Bar case in Australia and the rolling easement construct in Texas, USA.
