Miccosukees And The Tamiami Trail Bridge: Examining The Tribe’S Attempts To Sink The Modified Waters Delivery Project, jeffrey hegewald 2010 University of Miami School of Law

Miccosukees And The Tamiami Trail Bridge: Examining The Tribe’S Attempts To Sink The Modified Waters Delivery Project, Jeffrey Hegewald

jeffrey a hegewald

In the fall of 2008, legal challenges to the Tamiami Trail Bridge project threatened to derail a critical component of the $7.3 billion Everglades restoration program. Indeed, only the Omnibus Spending Act of 2009 saved the project following a ruling from the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Prior to the events discussed in my note, failure appeared almost certain for years of research, development, and project adaptations performed by the Army Corps of Engineers in conjunction with the DOI/National Park Service.

My note, "Miccosukees and the Tamiami Trail Bridge: Examining the Tribe’s Attempts ...

Competition And Regulation In The Gold Industry: An American Perspective, Jared Wilkerson 2010 College of William and Mary

Competition And Regulation In The Gold Industry: An American Perspective, Jared Wilkerson

Jared A. Wilkerson

When taken from a domestic viewpoint, the primary gold market appears to be noncompetitive and marred by concentration. However, when seen at the global scale, it is clear that the primary gold market is competitive and diluted. Further, even if the primary market were noncompetitive and concentrated at the global level, that market probably could not readily affect the price of gold. Regardless of competitiveness, gold mines in the United States and elsewhere are subject to environmental and safety regulations that increase the cost of production; Regulations are stringently enforced in the United States as compared to competitor countries, potentially ...

Steinzor, Joseph Tomain, Sandra Zellmer, James Goodwin

Faculty Scholarship

The BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is destined to take its place as one of the greatest environmental disasters in the history of the United States, or for that matter, of the entire planet. Like so many other disasters on that list, it was entirely preventable.

BP must shoulder its share of the blame, of course. Similarly, the Minerals Management Service (MMS) – since reorganized and rebranded – has come under much deserved criticism for its failure to rein in BP’s avaricious approach to drilling even where it was unable to respond to a worst-case scenario in a ...


Trampling The Public Trust, Debra L. Donahue 2010 Boston College Law School

Trampling The Public Trust, Debra L. Donahue

Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review

Livestock production is a chief contributor to many significant and intractable environmental problems. This Article examines the causal role of livestock (especially beef) production in global climate change, predator control in the western United States, and winter elk feeding in Wyoming. It argues that ending livestock grazing on western public lands is a cost effective first step for dealing with these problems and is readily achievable under existing law. Removing livestock would lead to improved watershed conditions and make reintroduction of predators politically feasible, which would promote further recovery of landscapes impacted by native ungulate populations. Ending public-land grazing would ...


China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson 2010 SelectedWorks

China In Context: Energy, Water, And Climate Cooperation, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Climate resilient communities can be achieved with the support of global research, development, deployment, and diffusion of environmentally sound low GHG emission technologies and processes. Technology cooperation should lower emissions remaining mindful of biodiversity, ecosystem services and livelihoods. China and the United States need to respond effectively to both economic and climate crises and can do so in part by cooperating on environmentally sound technology that transforms the global use of energy.

Redd, White, And Blue: Is Proposed U.S. Climate Legislation Adequate To Promote A Global Carbon Credits System For Avoided Deforestation In A Post-Kyoto Regime?, Randall S. Abate

Correcting Mismatched Authorities: Erecting A New "Water Federalism", Robert H. "Bo" Abrams 2010 Florida A & M University College of Law

Correcting Mismatched Authorities: Erecting A New "Water Federalism", Robert H. "Bo" Abrams

Journal Publications

In the United States water law is a subset of property law that controls the use and allocation of the water resource. Water law was, and remains, state law; nothing in the Constitution purports to change that. The scope of federal sovereignty at the time of nationhood did not include even the possibility of playing a major role in regulating resources because the national government was not a significant landholder. The twentieth century changed water federalism dramatically. In the twentieth century, even while laws and rhetoric respected the division of authority favoring the states, the real power over water in ...


Framing Water Policy In A Carbon Affected And Carbon Constrained Environment, Robert H. Abrams, Noah D. Hall 2010 Florida A & M University College of Law

Framing Water Policy In A Carbon Affected And Carbon Constrained Environment, Robert H. Abrams, Noah D. Hall

Journal Publications

Climate change driven by greenhouse gas emissions is substantially altering water availability while increasing water demand. Shifts in domestic energy policy and production, while needed to confront the challenge of climate change, may further stress the nation's water resources. These changes and new demands will be most severe in regions that are already experiencing water stresses and conflicts. This article examines the extent of the changes in water supply and demand by assessing how water conflicts will be addressed in the four overarching water use categories: water for population security, water for ecological security, water for energy security, and ...
