Saving Our Environment from Washington

How Congress Grabs Power, Shirks Responsibility, and Shortchanges the People

  • David Schoenbrod
      REVIEWS             PREVIEW             CONTENTS             EXCERPTS      

Through vivid tales of the pollution wars, a veteran environmental advocate shows that the Environmental Protection Agency is so big and remote that it must fail the environment and our society. David Schoenbrod reaches the surprising conclusion that we should strip the EPA of its power to dictate to the nation and replace it with “bottom-up” environmental protection now. 

"A terrific, albeit disturbing, read. Only someone with Schoenbrod’s unique combination of legal, political, and practical expertise could write so insightfully about environmental politics."—Morris P. Fiorina, Stanford University "Schoenbrod makes a compelling case that, by delegating lawmaking responsibility to government agencies, Congress has imposed huge costs on the economy and bad choices on the environment."—John Berlau, Wall Street Journal

David Schoenbrod is trustee professor, New York Law School, and adjunct scholar, Cato Institute. During his tenure as an attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council, he initiated litigation to force the EPA to reduce lead in gasoline and other environmental cases of particular importance to minorities and the poor.
