Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo 2016 Boston College Law School

Mixing Oil And Water: The Role Of Natural Resource Wealth In The Resolution Of The Maritime Boundary Dispute Between Ghana And Côte D’Ivoire, Natalie Cappellazzo

Boston College International and Comparative Law Review

The West African nations of Ghana and Côte D’Ivoire are deeply entrenched in a legal battle over where in the Atlantic Ocean to draw the maritime boundary between them. Further complicating the conflict is the presence of significant quantities of offshore petroleum in the disputed area. In an interim order issued on April 25, 2015, a Special Chamber of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea ruled that Ghana may proceed with existing oil-related activity but must take all steps necessary to prevent new drilling, ensure that no information derived from oil exploration be used to the ...

Protection Of The Marine Environment Under International Law And Kuwaiti Criminal Law, Yousef H. Almutairi

Dissertations & Theses

The marine environment has unique characteristics that distinguish it from other elements of nature. Since seas and oceans cover more than two-thirds of the earth, they play a vital role in achieving biological and climatic balance on the planet. The marine environment also plays an important role in human life, since it has plenty of nutritious and industrial resources that directly affect human welfare.

No Fracknation Without Representation: Stripping Away A City’S Right To Regulate The Stripping Away Of Its Natural Resources In State Ex Rel. Morrison V. Beck Energy Corp., Derek Rocha 2016 Boston College Law School

No Fracknation Without Representation: Stripping Away A City’S Right To Regulate The Stripping Away Of Its Natural Resources In State Ex Rel. Morrison V. Beck Energy Corp., Derek Rocha

Boston College Journal of Law & Social Justice

In 2011, the city of Munroe Falls, Ohio sought to prevent Beck Energy Corporation from drilling for gas or oil within its city limits until the company complied with the city’s relevant municipal ordinances. Pursuant cases sought to resolve whether Munroe Falls’ municipal ordinances were a valid exercise of the city’s home-rule power. The Ohio Supreme Court determined that the local ordinances conflicted with state law, which regulated oil and gas production within Ohio. The court held that the state law preempted the local ordinances as they sought to regulate oil and gas production in a similar manner ...

The Red Dawn Of Geoengineering: First Step Toward An Effective Governance For Stratospheric Injections, Edward J. Larson 2016 Duke Law

The Red Dawn Of Geoengineering: First Step Toward An Effective Governance For Stratospheric Injections, Edward J. Larson

Duke Law & Technology Review

A landmark report by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) issued in 2015 is the latest in a series of scientific studies to assess the feasibility of geoengineering with stratospheric aerosols to offset anthropogenic global warming and to conclude that they offer a possibly viable supplement or back-up alternative to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The known past effect of major explosive volcanic eruptions temporarily moderating average worldwide temperatures provides evidence in support of this once taboo form of climate intervention. In the most extensive study to date, an elite NAS committee now suggests that such processes for adjusting global temperature ...
