This survey course explores the major domestic policies in place to protect the environment, with a focus on clean air and water and animal conservation (e.g., the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, and the Endangered Species Act). The course is a complement to Professor Templeton’s Toxic Torts and Environmental Justice course; neither is a prerequisite for the other, and the two share little overlap. We’ll spend some time on the regulation of climate change and will discuss issues of environmental justice embedded in each of the major topics. Participation may be considered in final grading.
