Greenhouse Gas Emission Targets And Mass Transit: Can The Government Successfully Accomplish Both Without A Conflict?, Darren A. Prum, Sarah L. Catz 2010 Florida State University

Greenhouse Gas Emission Targets And Mass Transit: Can The Government Successfully Accomplish Both Without A Conflict?, Darren A. Prum, Sarah L. Catz

Darren A. Prum

Following Massachusetts v. EPA, President Obama along with Congress has made it clear that there is a national need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the board. While state and federal smart growth legislative initiatives are being developed to accomplish the targets set by our policy makers, few if any initiatives have integrated the biggest tool in the tool box to reduce emissions-- transit. Most transit agencies across the board have cut service back by 20 to 40 percent. Retaining transit service levels (if not increasing levels) needs to be a national goal in order to reach a realistic reduction ...

Climate Justice, Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Prof. Elizabeth Burleson

Achieving climate justice and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are mutually- reinforcing challenges. The achievement of both is well within the capacity of the international community. Indeed, reaching carbon neutrality in an affordable, environmentally sound way requires integrating the strategies of mitigation, adaptation, sustainable development, and disaster risk management.


Questions Of A Minority People In International Law, Bernard Sama Mr 2010 Auckland University

Questions Of A Minority People In International Law, Bernard Sama Mr

Bernard Sama

The month July of 2011 marked the birth of another nation in the World. The distressful journey of a minority people under the watchful eyes of the international community finally paid off with a new nation called the South Sudan . As I watched the South Sudanese celebrate independence on 9 July 2011, I was filled with joy as though they have finally landed. On a promising note, I read the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon saying “[t]ogether, we welcome the Republic of South Sudan to the community of nations. Together, we affirm our commitment to helping it meet its ...

The Role Of Insurance In Providing Adequate Compensation And In Reducing Pollution Incidents: The Case Of The International Oil Pollution Liability Regime, Muhammad Masum Billah Dr. 2010 Sultan Qaboos University

The Role Of Insurance In Providing Adequate Compensation And In Reducing Pollution Incidents: The Case Of The International Oil Pollution Liability Regime, Muhammad Masum Billah Dr.

Muhammad Masum Billah Dr.

In terms of compensation, the international oil pollution liability regime is very successful, but its success in deterring negligent navigation is not above question. That said, the stated primary goal of the oil pollution liability regime is to provide adequate compensation against oil pollution damage fulfilling this goal, the oil pollution liability regime has achieved great success. The success of the oil pollution liability regime in guaranteeing adequate compensation can be attributed to its various insurance provisions. It not only imposes compulsory insurance on ship-owners but also requires them to carry a certificate of insurance as proof. The regime then ...

Battery Technology For Electric And Hybrid Vehicles: Expert Views On Prospects For Advancement, Erin D. Baker, Haewon Chon, Jeffrey M. Keisler 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Battery Technology For Electric And Hybrid Vehicles: Expert Views On Prospects For Advancement, Erin D. Baker, Haewon Chon, Jeffrey M. Keisler

Management Science and Information Systems Faculty Publication Series

In this paper we present the results of an expert elicitation on the prospects for advances in battery technology for electric and hybrid vehicles. We find disagreement among the experts on a wide range of topics, including the need for government funding, the probability of getting batteries with lithium metal anodes to work, and the probability of building safe Lithium-ion batteries. Averaging across experts we find that U.S. government expenditures of $150M/yr lead to a 66% chance of achieving a battery that costs less than $200/kWh, and a 20% chance for a cost of $90/kWh or ...


Avoiding The Avoidable: Why State Laws Need To Protect Kids From Airbags, Mary Ann Chirba 2010 Boston College Law School

Avoiding The Avoidable: Why State Laws Need To Protect Kids From Airbags, Mary Ann Chirba

Boston College Law School Faculty Papers

Impact with a front passenger airbag engineered to stop a large statured, adult male from hitting the windshield risks devastating if not fatal harm for a child. "Avoiding the Avoidable: Why State Laws Need to Protect Kids from Airbags" proposes a simple solution: absent extenuating circumstances, require rear seating for child passengers. This article describes the mechanism of injury, examines the inadequacies and inconsistencies of current national and state efforts to reduce pediatric airbag risk, and proposes comprehensive "model" legislation to avoid this completely avoidable yet often fatal harm.


Lost In Transition, DOUGLAS J. HENDERSON 2010 Selected Works

Lost In Transition, Douglas J. Henderson

DOUGLAS J HENDERSON

Jail costs and incarceration rates have reached their highest levels in decades. Something must be done about this situation. There are many individuals that are incarcerated needlessly. Additionally, there are many great opportunities to affect individual's lives when they do come into contact with the criminal justice system. These opportunities are not being taken advantage of. Moreover, one of the key components to successful correction and rehabilitation is not being implemented in Hamilton County, Ohio - namely a hands on transition program. There are other areas that I have encountered in my hands-on research and feet on the street work ...

Predicting Police Discretion: A Traffic Stop Analysis, Andrew Girard 2010 Rhode Island College

Predicting Police Discretion: A Traffic Stop Analysis, Andrew Girard

Honors Projects Overview

Examines Donald Black's (1976) theory of pure sociology with data from traffic stops collected over eight months during seventy hours of "ride alongs" with eight different police departments in Rhode Island. Posits that the social structure of each traffic stop is predictable based on observable characteristics of the parties involved and that distance in social space increases the likelihood of a police officer issuing a citation to a driver, while social characteristics similar to that of the police officer reduces the likelihood of a driver receiving a citation. Twenty-one variables throught to impact a police officer's discretion are ...

Arrival Then Denial: Interpreting §203(A) Of The Clean Air Act, Analyzing Evidentiary Challenges, & Assessing Conflicting Statutory Directives, Jesse Levine 2010 American University Washington College of Law

Arrival Then Denial: Interpreting §203(A) Of The Clean Air Act, Analyzing Evidentiary Challenges, & Assessing Conflicting Statutory Directives, Jesse Levine

Distinguished Student Research Papers

An “arrival then denial” occurs when uncertified engines arrive at a U.S. port, but are denied entry to the U.S. by Customs & Border Protection (Customs). Why does this matter? In most cases these uncertified engines are sent back to the country of origin. However, due to resource constraints, a sizeable number of uncertified engines slip past Customs and enter the U.S. each year. Uncertified engines, without proper controls, have been estimated to emit at least 30% more emissions than their certified counterparts. Such emissions exacerbate climate change, acid rain, and air quality generally. EPA attorneys assert that ...
