Environmental Law Jurisprudence And Associate Justice Antonin Scalia's Legacy, James R. May 2016 Widener Law

Environmental Law Jurisprudence And Associate Justice Antonin Scalia's Legacy, James R. May

James R. May

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia left a long and indelible jurisprudential shadow on environmental law. Over his nearly 30 years on the bench, the former professor of administrative law shaped—sometimes single-handedly—a multitude of areas that serve as stock-and-trade of environmental, energy, and natural resources lawyering across the nation. This article focuses on standing, takings, and deference to environmental agency rulemaking.


Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman 2016 Osgoode Hall Law School

Assessing Greenhouse Gas Emissions In The Oil Sands: Legislative Or Administrative (In)Action?, Mark Friedman

Western Journal of Legal Studies

The development of the oil sands in Alberta has become a focal point in Canada’s response to global climate change. Before an oil sands project can proceed, it must first undergo environmental assessment. This process frequently engages both provincial and federal environmental assessment legislation, which are implemented by administrative tribunals.

Investing In The Future: Norway, Climate Change, And Fossil Fuel Divestment, Matthew Rimmer

Matthew Rimmer

The fossil fuel divestment movement has undergone explosive growth over the last few years - expanding from encouraging educational institutions to adopt ethical investment policies to focusing upon cities, pension funds and philanthropic charities. The fossil fuel divestment movement has attained global ambitions - challenging sovereign wealth funds and national governments to engage in fossil fuel divestment, and pushing for fossil fuel divestment at international climate talks - such as the Paris Climate Summit in 2015.

Mauna Kea Anaina Hou V. Board Of Land And Natural Resources, Wesley J. Furlong 2016 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Mauna Kea Anaina Hou V. Board Of Land And Natural Resources, Wesley J. Furlong

Public Land and Resources Law Review

Native Hawaiians and the scientific community have been pitted against each other in a decades-long culture war over the construction of observatories and telescopes on sacred landscapes. In Mauna Kea Anaina Hou, the Hawai’i Supreme Court handed a victory to Native Hawaiian culture and rights by halting the construction of a new telescope on Mauna Kea. The decision must be read cautiously, however, as it is firmly rooted in the strict application of procedural due process.
