Promoting The Sustainability Of Biofuels In America: Looking To Brazil, Julia Johnson 2015 SelectedWorks

Promoting The Sustainability Of Biofuels In America: Looking To Brazil, Julia Johnson

Julia Johnson

This article explores the reasons why previous attempts at biofuels legislation in the United States have not been successful and focuses upon market-level incentives that drive consumer willingness to purchase biofuels. For the U.S.’s biofuels policies to be more effective, the nation must better employ consumer-side factors and devise policies around promoting biofuels’ ability to compete with conventional fuels. Consumer-side factors include biofuels’ accessibility and pricing, as well as the ease and attractiveness of purchasing alternative energy-powered vehicles. The U.S.’s initiatives have also neither been aggressive enough, nor sufficiently comprehensive, to enable the U.S. to ...

A Dangerous Servant And A Fearful Master: Why Florida’S Prescribed Fire Statute Should Be Amended, Stephen McCullers 2014 University of Florida Levin College of Law

A Dangerous Servant And A Fearful Master: Why Florida’S Prescribed Fire Statute Should Be Amended, Stephen Mccullers

Florida Law Review

Fire will not be denied its opportunity to burn through Florida’s forests. The citizens of Florida, however, can accept the responsibility of deciding how the forest will burn. Fire can be purposefully ignited under exact weather conditions, acting as a controlled but dangerous servant with a slim chance of escape or harm. Or, if Floridians refuse to accept any responsibility in proactively managing forest fire, nature will determine when the forest will burn. The fire will be a fearful master, raging through the forest with the potential to cause great harm to people, property, and the environment.

Protecting Vulnerable Environments In International Humanitarian Law, Michaela Halpern 2014 SelectedWorks

Protecting Vulnerable Environments In International Humanitarian Law, Michaela Halpern

Michaela Halpern

One of the fundamental principles of International Humanitarian Law, if not the fundamental principle, is the need to distinguish combatants from civilians and civilian objects in the course of belligerency. One of the most important civilian objects is the environment in which civilians live. However the importance of the environment has not been a focus of International Humanitarian Law until recent years. Rules of International Humanitarian Law now account for environmental matters generally but are not adequate to deal with particular "vulnerable" environments, such as the Arctic and the Amazon. Changes in these environments have the potential for world-wide repercussions ...

Evaluation Of Directive 2014/52/Eu And Spanish Law 21/2013 Along With The Need To Include The Reverse Environmental Assessment Analysis For The Adaptation Of Projects, Plans, And Programs To The Effects Of Climate Change, Teresa -. Parejo 2014 SelectedWorks

Evaluation Of Directive 2014/52/Eu And Spanish Law 21/2013 Along With The Need To Include The Reverse Environmental Assessment Analysis For The Adaptation Of Projects, Plans, And Programs To The Effects Of Climate Change, Teresa -. Parejo

Teresa - Parejo

The need for action on climate change is recognized around the world, and the European Union is not an exception. For that reason, the new Directive 2014/52/EU stresses the requirement to strengthen the quality of the Environmental Impact Assessment procedure by including the so-called “Reverse Environmental Impact Assessment”, which adds to the traditional tool a new and complementary vision that takes into account the effects of the changing climate into certain public and private projects.


Land Use And Climate Change Bubbles: Resilience, Retreat, And Due Diligence, John R. Nolon 2014 Pace University

Land Use And Climate Change Bubbles: Resilience, Retreat, And Due Diligence, John R. Nolon

Pace Law Faculty Publications

This article examines events on the ground in several localities where climate change is lowering property values and analyzes how those changes in value can be reckoned with by regulators. The article merges practices and principles of real estate transactions and finance with those of land use and environmental regulation.

Climate change is a planetary phenomenon whose environmental implications are far-reaching. Reports on climate change consequences increasingly focus on what is happening locally and presently, while speculation continues about long-term global consequences. In numerous communities, property values are declining because of repeated flooding, continued threats of storm surges, sustained high ...
