Regulating Ammonium Nitrate Fertilizer Under The General Duty Clause, Drew Levinson 2016 Pace University School of Law

Regulating Ammonium Nitrate Fertilizer Under The General Duty Clause, Drew Levinson

Pace Environmental Law Review

This Article explores how the Clean Air Act’s (CAA) general duty clause can be utilized to prevent catastrophes such as the explosion in West, Texas.

Part III looks at our current approach to regulating ammonium nitrate fertilizer and the shortcomings of this regulatory regime. Part IV provides an overview of the CAA’s general duty clause. Furthermore, it describes how the general duty clause can be applied to ammonium nitrate fertilizer facilities ...

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 ...

قریب به ۳ سال از آن انتصابات ریاست جمهوری ۱۳۹۲ ایران می گذرد، زندانیان در زندان و سرها بر دار و حقوق انسان ها همچنان در بند است. چراکه تغییر در عملکرد یک حاکمیت یا حتی یک انسان، از تغییر در ساختارهای قانون اساسی یا بنیان های فکری اش نشات می گیرد. تغییر یا اصلاح یا بهبود یا هر گونه پیشرفتی اساسی در ایران زمین و خاورمیانه، حاصل نخواهد شد تا آن زمان که قانون اساسی کشور (اصل ناراست ۱۱۰) قدرت خداوندگاری را تنها و تنها به یک شخص (رهبر) هدیه کرده است

The Natech: Right-To-Know As Space-Time Puzzle, Gregg P. Macey 2016 Brooklyn Law School

The Natech: Right-To-Know As Space-Time Puzzle, Gregg P. Macey

Gregg P. Macey

Federal environmental law began with a plea: that agencies and other parties consider, and mitigate, the environmental impacts of their work. The task remains unfulfilled given the nature of those impacts: They feature system effects, nonlinear interactions, feedback loops, discontinuous and threshold dynamics, and uncertain boundaries. The administrative state has limited means to address them. It relies on artificial constructs to assess and respond to impacts, such as worst-case scenarios, reasonable foreseeability, and scales that are either inappropriately narrow (“linked” projects) or large and vague (“program-level”). Right-to-know laws share this shortcoming, a product of the disasters that led to their ...


A New Era For Energy In Mexico? The 2013-14 Energy Reform, Tim Samples 2015 University of Georgia

A New Era For Energy In Mexico? The 2013-14 Energy Reform, Tim Samples

Tim R Samples

The 2013-14 Energy Reform is arguably Mexico’s most significant structural change in the last fifty years. As the fiscal backbone of the Mexican state, the energy sector is critically important to Mexico’s future. But the outcome of the Energy Reform also has powerful implications for North America and global energy markets. This article analyzes key legal issues in Mexico’s current Energy Reform, with a particular emphasis on newly established contracting frameworks for private investment. In doing so, this article considers Mexico’s approach within the greater context of natural resource development priorities around the world, which often ...


Wyoming V. United States Department Of Interior, Keatan J. Williams 2015 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Wyoming V. United States Department Of Interior, Keatan J. Williams

Public Land and Resources Law Review

In a scathing opinion, the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming granted a motion for preliminary injunction, effectively blocking the BLM’s new Fracking Rule from being implemented on federal and tribal lands in the United States. The court held not only was the BLM’s new rule likely arbitrary and capricious, but the department lacked the authority to regulate fracking. The opinion relied on the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Energy Policy Act to determine that Congress explicitly removed fracking from federal regulation. Pending an appeal, the new Fracking Rule will not be implemented.

Dodd-Frank’S Extension Of Criminal Corporate Liability Through The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Enabling Whistleblowers And Monitoring Conflict Minerals, Tim Bakken 2015 Pace University

Dodd-Frank’S Extension Of Criminal Corporate Liability Through The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Enabling Whistleblowers And Monitoring Conflict Minerals, Tim Bakken

Pace Law Review

In a sense, through its whistleblower provision, the Dodd-Frank Act has enabled the government to use corporate employee whistleblowers to support criminal prosecutions. That position finds agreement in this article, but the conclusion reached is that the results to be obtained from the whistleblower provision will be positive. Through an analysis of the Dodd-Frank Act, this article discusses further the new reach of the FCPA, particularly in light of the whistleblower and conflict-minerals provisions in the Dodd-Frank Act. Finally, this article concludes that although the new provisions can be costly, the provisions are beneficial. The traditional corporate model is now ...


Sierra Club V. United States Army Corps Of Engineers, 803 F.3d 31 (D.C. Cir. 2015), Ariel E. Overstreet-Adkins 2015 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Sierra Club V. United States Army Corps Of Engineers, 803 F.3d 31 (D.C. Cir. 2015), Ariel E. Overstreet-Adkins

Public Land and Resources Law Review

Despite the majority’s “needlessly circuitous” route, as described by concurring Judge Brown, Sierra Club v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers stands as a limit of the application of NEPA to a private pipeline constructed largely on private land. While the main issue identified by the District of Columbia Circuit Court was the scope of environmental review required under NEPA, the court also addressed issues dealing with the ESA and the CWA relating to the construction and operation of a pipeline in the Midwest. The court held that under these circumstances, NEPA review was mandated only for those small ...
