Environmental Law for the 21st Century,” Mar. 28-29
An environmental logjam has been building in the U.S. for years: Congress
has not passed major environmental legislation in nearly two decades,
partisanship has prevented progress, and existing federal statutes have
failed to solve growing problems like climate change. But there is a new
consensus emerging among a diverse group of environmental law experts
about how to solve the
problems. The first gathering of these reform
environmentalists will be held at New York University School of Law this
month at a symposium called “Breaking the Logjam: An Environmental Law for the 21st
Over 40 leading environmental experts from across the
ideological spectrum – and with experience in environmental
organizations, business, government, and academia – will offer proposals to address
problems such as climate change, degradation of marine ecosystems, waste
management failures, unregulated factory farms, urban congestion, and
paralysis in management of the public lands.
