About this book

After several decades of significant but incomplete successes, environmental protection in the United States is stuck. Administrations under presidents of both parties have fallen well short of the goals of their environmental statutes. David Schoenbrod, Richard B. Stewart, and Katrina M. Wyman, distinguished scholars in the field of environmental law, identify the core problems with existing environmental statutes and programmes and explain how Congress can fix them. Based on a project the authors led that incorporated the work of more than fifty leading environmental experts, this book is a call to action through public understanding based on a nonpartisan argument for smarter, more flexible regulatory programmes to stimulate the economy and encourage green technology.
