Breathing Air With Heft: An Experiential Report On Environmental Regulation And Public Health In Urban China, Erin Ryan 2017 Florida State University College of Law

Breathing Air With Heft: An Experiential Report On Environmental Regulation And Public Health In Urban China, Erin Ryan

Erin Ryan

This article explores the gritty intersections of daily life and environmental law in modern China, an industrial powerhouse still struggling to reconcile economic opportunity with breathable air, clean water, healthy food, and safe products.  With comparative perspective on analogous challenges in the United States, the article reports on these critical domestic challenges for China at a pivotal moment in its reemergence as a dominant world power.  China’s continued geopolitical rise may well hinge on its ability to respond successfully to the environmental causes of growing social unrest.
 
In 2011, in the midst of this maelstrom, I brought my husband ...

From Shark Finning To Shark Fishing: A Strategy For The U.S. & Eu To Combat Shark Finning In China & Hong Kong, Jeremy Iloulian 2017 Duke Law

From Shark Finning To Shark Fishing: A Strategy For The U.S. & Eu To Combat Shark Finning In China & Hong Kong, Jeremy Iloulian

Duke Environmental Law & Policy Forum

Globally, the shark population is under extreme stress, primarily due to the rise of China and a growing middle class with a taste for a cultural dish: shark fin soup. Sharks play an important ecologic role and can be extremely beneficial to the local economy. They can also be an important food source for people if harvested sustainably and not in a manner that challenges the morality of humans’ relationship with the ocean; something the current shark finning practices do. Approaches to sustainable shark fishing at the international and domestic level have met some success. Even so, China and Hong ...

Conserving Parks, Transforming Lives: How The Student Conservation Association Is Shaping The Next 100 Years Of National Parks And The Next Generation Of American Youth, Liz Putnam 2017 The University of Akron

Conserving Parks, Transforming Lives: How The Student Conservation Association Is Shaping The Next 100 Years Of National Parks And The Next Generation Of American Youth, Liz Putnam

Akron Law Review

The National Park Service greeted a record-shattering 307.2 million visitors in 2015. Ironically, however, national parks are becoming irrelevant to large segments of our society. The typical national park visitor is approaching retirement age. Nearly four in five visitors are White, despite the fact that Whites currently make up less than 63% of the US population and are on pace to be in the minority by 2044. Throw in the nature-deficit disorder epidemic among today’s youth and the ongoing shift in our population to urban areas, and the trends do not bode well for the future of our ...


Alaska: Extraordinary Parks, Extraordinarily Complicated, Julie Lurman Joly 2017 The University of Akron

Alaska: Extraordinary Parks, Extraordinarily Complicated, Julie Lurman Joly

Akron Law Review

In many ways, national parks in Alaska face the same difficulties as other parks nationwide: pockets of strong anti-federal sentiment, increasingly high usage rates (at least in a couple of Alaska parks) leading to resource degradation, decreasing funding, and increasing maintenance costs. On the other hand, Alaska parks are completely unique in their circumstances. Many parks in Alaska receive few to no visitors each year, and Alaska parks contain vast tracts of land and resources but are managed by the barest minimum number of employees. Furthermore, Alaska’s national parks operate in a more complex legal environment than most other ...


The National Park System And Nepa: Non-Impairment In An Age Of Disruption, Jamison E. Colburn 2017 The University of Akron

The National Park System And Nepa: Non-Impairment In An Age Of Disruption, Jamison E. Colburn

Akron Law Review

We live in an age of disruption. “Disruptive innovations,” typically digital in nature, create new markets and value chains that grow and overthrow market leaders and other incumbents. The founders of our National Park System and National Park Service (NPS) had little sense of such disruption and, judging by how our park ideals have fared in recent decades, too little sense of how disruption works in nature, either. The parks embody a set of ideals and, as one of the most noted inventions of America’s democracy, sit in uneasy tension with the constant disruption of nature’s composition and ...


The National Park Service At 100, Donald J. Hellmann 2017 The University of Akron

The National Park Service At 100, Donald J. Hellmann

Akron Law Review

In its first century, the National Park Service was transformed from an agency that managed a small number of western parks to one responsible for over 400 sites across the country. The management of these park sites has changed as well, with many new parks structured as a partnership effort between the National Park Service and surrounding cities and towns, as well as non-profit organizations and friends groups. The Park Service has had its work extended by Congress to reach beyond park boundaries in order to help states and local governments with resource preservation and the development of recreational opportunities ...

Waste Collection In Rural Communities: Challenges Under Eu Regulations. A Case Study Of Neamt County, Romania, Florin C. MIHAI 2017 "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University

Waste Collection In Rural Communities: Challenges Under Eu Regulations. A Case Study Of Neamt County, Romania, Florin C. Mihai

Florin C MIHAI

The paper aims to examine the changes in the rural waste management sector at regional scale since the
Romania adhesion to the EU in 2007. The traditional waste management based on the mixed waste collection and waste disposal often on improper sites prevailed in municipal waste management options of transitional economies across the globe. The lack of formal waste collection services in rural areas has encouraged the open dumping or backyard burning. The paper analyzes the improvements and challenges of
local authorities to fulfill the new EU requirements in this sector supported by data analysis at local administrative unit levels ...

Keeping More Than One Fish In The Sea: Why The Magnuson-Stevens Act Should Be Reauthorized, Joseph Marino IV 2017 University of Massachusetts School of Law

Keeping More Than One Fish In The Sea: Why The Magnuson-Stevens Act Should Be Reauthorized, Joseph Marino Iv

University of Massachusetts Law Review

The American fishing industry has long been an important part of the economy. In time, overfishing led to restrictions on the industry through the Magnuson-Stevens Act. However, the Act has led to severe curtailments on fishing that have severely hampered the industry. This caused particular harm to the Northeast, resulting in a federally declared fishing disaster. This Note argues that the recently proposed revisions to the Magnuson-Stevens Act allow for a balance between protecting our oceans and allowing the fishing industry to thrive again. This would help the Northeast fishing industry properly recover while preventing any further tragedies of the ...


Preventing A Risk/Risk Trade-Off: An Analysis Of The Measures Necessary To Increase U.S. Pollinator Numbers, Camila Acchiardo Vallejo 2017 Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University

Preventing A Risk/Risk Trade-Off: An Analysis Of The Measures Necessary To Increase U.S. Pollinator Numbers, Camila Acchiardo Vallejo

Pace Environmental Law Review

This Note will proceed in four parts. Part II will discuss the importance of pollinators and the possible reasons for their declining numbers. Part III will delve into the current and proposed actions to increase pollinator populations that are taking place in the United States. Part IV will then discuss the generally desired and widely accepted solution: a ban on neonicotinoids. This Part will introduce the implementation and results of a neonicotinoid ban in the European Union, and the risk/risk trade-off presented by a neonicotinoid ban. Finally, Part V will compile the solutions discussed in Parts III and IV ...


Friends Or Foes? The Problem Of South Florida’S Invasive Mangroves, Kelly J. Cox, Rafael J. Araújo 2017 Miami Waterkeeper

Friends Or Foes? The Problem Of South Florida’S Invasive Mangroves, Kelly J. Cox, Rafael J. Araújo

Pace Environmental Law Review

A recent global review on the impacts of climate change on mangroves concluded that different regions will experience varying degrees of impacts due to the variability of expected changes in climate (shifts in precipitation, frequency and intensity of storms, droughts, sea level rise, change of ocean currents, increases in CO2 concentrations, etc.) and the variety of types and mangrove assemblages growing in these regions, including different species composition of mangrove forests. In North America and the Caribbean, these changes are dependent upon a predicted higher frequency (and intensity) of tropical storms, sea level rise, changes in patterns of precipitation, and ...


Labor Leading On Climate: A Policy Platform To Address Rising Inequality And Rising Sea Levels In New York State, J. Mijin Cha 2017 Occidental College

Labor Leading On Climate: A Policy Platform To Address Rising Inequality And Rising Sea Levels In New York State, J. Mijin Cha

Pace Environmental Law Review

With the renewed need for state action, this paper presents a case study of a labor-led initiative in New York State that seeks to address both economic inequality and the climate crisis. It discusses how organized labor, which has historically represented fossil fuel workers and has not been seen as a traditional climate ally, put forth a comprehensive climate jobs plan that could meaningfully reduce carbon emissions while also creating good, family-sustaining jobs to reduce income inequality. As the need for a broader coalition to advocate for sensible climate policy increases, this case study provides a road map for states ...
