Description
This course will investigate how federal and state entities control pollution of the air, water, and soil, and how they limit human health impacts caused by toxics in consumer goods.  In addition to discussing the traditional environmental laws and courts' interpretations of these laws -- such as the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts, "Superfund," and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act -- we will look at major state-led programs and voluntary initiatives.  Finally, we will study international efforts at pollution control, focusing on ozone-depleting substances, greenhouse gases, and hazardous waste.
