‘David Konisky and his co-authors have created the new standard text for U.S. environmental policy. Their ambitious book spans the breadth of environmental politics and policy-making, from institutions and policy tools to lobbying and climate change.

Authoritative and trusted, Environmental Policy once again brings together top scholars to evaluate the changes and continuities in American environmental policy since the late s and their implications for the twenty-first ts will learn to decipher the underlying trends, institutional constraints, and policy dilemmas that shape today’s environmental politics.

"The book provides a rich array of ideas and case evidence that will add to our understanding of U.S. foreign policy on the environment."— International Relations "An important and timely volume that fills a large gap in the literature on American environmental policy. This article analyzes the determinants of U.S.

international environmental policy. The U.S. has always exhibited a streak of reluctance about international environmental cooperation, sometimes taking on leadership roles but often resisting or actively hindering international action to address environmental problems.

Since then, it has evolved into one of the primary concerns of governmental policy from the federal to the local level.

As scientific expertise on the environment rapidly developed, Americans became more aware of the growing environmental crisis that surrounded them. This book explores the future of international environmental law in a world of ever worsening environmental crises.

It examines the success stories and failures of international environmental law. How do international environmental standards come into being. One important way, as Elizabeth DeSombre shows in this book, is through the internationalization of regulations that one or more countries have undertaken domestically.

Domestic environmental regulation, DeSombre argues, can create an incentive for environmentalists and industry—previously at odds with each other—to work. This course considers these issues and provides a tour though existing legal regimes governing pollution, water law, endangered species, toxic substances, environmental impact analyses, and environmental risk.

Environmental policy is comprised of two dominant terms: the environment and policy. This term, when broken-down can be understood—environment refers to the ecological dimension or ecosystems, but also takes into account the quality of life and the ability to manage our resources.The environmental policy of the United States is a federal governmental action to regulate activities that have an environmental impact in the United goal of environmental policy is to protect the environment for future generations while interfering as little as possible with the efficiency of commerce or the liberty of the people and to limit inequity in who is burdened with.
