About this book

In order to state unambiguously the truth about jobs and the environment, an environmental economist explores the localized industries that may suffer job losses and explores mitigative strategies. He also considers the possibility that regulations can actually generate jobs, and sets out some policy options for dealing with the economic repercussions of environmental democracy.


Contents

Fictions, facts and politics; no economy-wide trade off; local layoffs and pollution havens; coal miners, timber workers and slopers; a jobs-environment synergy; global warming and American jobs; fictions, facts and the future.
