: Creative Undermining of Environmental Protections in the Bush Administration
Creative Undermining of Environmental Protections in the Bush Administration
Presented by The Watching Justice Distinguished Speakers Series
The Bush Administration has been accused of taking an anti-environmental approach, not only through changes in law and regulation, but by failing to appeal adverse court rulings and agreeing to generous settlements with industry plaintiffs. This highly experienced panel will discuss the current Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD), exploring whether or not ENRD is using creative mechanisms to roll back vital environmental protections “under the radar.” Based on their own experience in federal environmental agencies or as advocates, the panel will analyze governmental activities in this critical area and discuss the pros and cons of current and alternative strategies.
