Environmental Regulation: Law, Science, and Policy delivers unparalleled coverage of policy that focuses on the substance of environmental statutes, how they are translated into regulations, and the factors that affect real-world behavior. Self-contained chapters, written in a style accessible to the non-specialist, afford instructors flexibility in organizing courses. Effective teaching and study aids include charts and diagrams mapping the structure of each environmental statute, real-world-based problems and questions, “pathfinders” explaining where to find crucial source materials for every major topic, an extensive glossary, and a list of acronyms. The accompanying Website is kept current with annual statutory and case supplements.

The Seventh Edition is a massive revision, updating the most significant new developments in environmental law. New problem exercises show students how to apply the law to emerging environmental concerns. Important Supreme Court decisions such as American Electric Power, Sackett v. EPA, PPL Montana, Stop the Beach and Southern Union are explored as well as oil spill liability in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon spill, liability litigation, and the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. The Seventh Edition looks at state renewable energy initiatives, the dormant commerce clause, and the impact of burgeoning natural gas supplies on energy policy. Included is coverage on efforts to control the effects of hydraulic fracturing and why “fracking” is exempt from the Safe Drinking Water Act. The EPA’s regulation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions under the Clean Air Act as well as California’s statewide GHG cap-and-trade program are discussed. The Seventh Edition explores how climate change is affecting environmental law, especially global environmental law in the aftermath of the June 2012 Rio+20 earth summit.
