Overview


This almanac provides an overview of environmental law presented in an accessible fashion for those who may be encountering this complex area of law for the first time. Through this book, the reader will gain an understanding of the major environmental regulatory statutes, including those addressing air and water quality, hazardous materials and wastes, pesticides and other toxic substances, wetlands preservation, and endangered species. The reader will also be introduced to the agencies responsible for implementing and enforcing these statutes. This book also covers the common law principles which are of continuing importance in environmental law and from which modern environmental law directly descends. The reader will further gain an understanding of environmental restrictions on private property development, the increasingly important issue of global climate change, and the ability of the public to obtain access to environmental information through community right to know laws and other environmental statutes. This publication is also an invaluable reference guide for anyone already familiar with environmental law who is seeking access to the most recent information in the field.
