Environmental Law

...Everywhere in the world, the issue of climate change presents an archetypal environmental problem. Communities often fight governments, both at the state and national levels in a bid to protect the environment they have known for ages. Governments, on the other hand, protect these natural settings by formulating laws and policies that ensure the society does not lose its treasures[1]. However, some seek to use the protected spaces as a means of developing projects that will provide the state or nation with more resources, revenues and products. These may be good developmental projects, but they ought to protect the environment first before they can sell such ideas to a conservative society. As in all other nations, Australia has also been engulfed in a fight to save the environment as the government looks at creating developmental projects that will necessary block any advantages that the local community has enjoyed since time immemorial[2]. By seeking to repeal at least 60% of protection that the New South Wales Far North Coast’s forests, wetlands and wildlife habitant, the government is slowly seeking to destroy the local community. Conservatives will agree that the best way of protecting the environment is by setting aside a portion of some indigenous scenery and protect it from encroachment[3]. However, encroachment is still a biting problem and the recent statements by the authorities only heighten the environmental issues at hand. Legal processes and issues have arisen......

Impact of Environmental Regulations on Small Business

...Lorna Deans Cornerstone Seminar IDS101 Dec 21, 2012 The Impact of Environmental Regulation on Small Businesses Small businesses are critical to the U.S. economy. They create about one-half of all private sector jobs and generate more than half of all revenues. It is critical to take into consideration how regulations and litigation impact small businesses. The biggest impact consideration is the financial impact to a companies’ bottom line (RAND Corporation). The U.S. economy slowly coming out of a recession, small businesses are struggling to overcome imposing environmental regulations from Washington. With record low rates of small business startups, people would argue that these imposing regulations are turning out all positive results. Small businesses unlike their larger business counterparts, cannot afford to hire specialty firms to help them make their way through these regulations. It also takes a lot of time and money to keep up with all the rules imposed on them. Such regulations impose costs on small businesses ranging from capital investments in upgrading current working environments to civil or criminal penalties. An effect of these regulations would be lower hiring projections for the near future. Other effects could be that the U.S. will not see a significant change in the unemployment rates and small businesses will lose out on revenues generated by hiring more employees (Alford). The definition of a small business is one that employs 500......

Environmental Law

...Introduction The aim of this paper is to discuss the role of the law and science in moving us towards a more sustainable future. This will be done with the aid of selected global environmental treaties. In order to achieve this aim, the paper is going to begin with an introduction which is going to define key concepts identified. The main body will embark on the discussion at hand. The main body will begin by outlining the role of the law generally and will move on to look at the role of science generally. Thereon selected global treaties will be discussed in relation to their respective roles both at law and science. Lastly but not the least an elaborate conclusion will be given. Definition of Key Terms Environment: Environment refers to the totality of the surroundings within which humans live and exploit resources for their welfare and development. Main Body In order to effectively challenge problems that pose a threat to the earth, there is need for an effective approach which is backed by robust scientific evidence. This would ultimately usher into place a new and more powerful environmental law. In order to appreciate the relationship between the law and science, there is need for understanding of their respective roles towards the achievement of a more sustainable future. The Role of the Law The law has a fundamental role to play in the movement of protecting the environment towards a more sustainable future. In most jurisdictions in the absence of......

...employment. It is very important in nutrition, especially in providing animal protein. In 1997 - 99, the marine fisheries sector contributed 22% of the total fishery production of 1 373 000 t. However, the resources are being destroyed in many ways. The fisheries resources have declined and fishers are getting poorer. The decline is partly due to estuarine set bag net, push net, and beach seine fishing, which result in recruitment over-fishing. A multiplicity of factors adversely affect the coastal fishery resources of Bangladesh. Various laws, ordinances and acts have been formulated to manage the fisheries resources and to protect the coastal zone environment. Most of the laws have been amended to meet current needs. However, marine fisheries are not being wellmanaged because the laws are not properly implemented, due to a shortage of man power, lack of infrastructure and funds. Moreover, there are legislative and communication gaps between the law-enforcing agencies. In addition to sectoral issues, a number of cross-sectoral issues such as pollution and habitat destruction impact the coastal zone and the long-term sustainability of coastal fishery resources. The main objectives of coastal fisheries management in Bangladesh should include the following: (1) rational utilization of resources; (2) protection/conservation of the environment or habitat; (3) maximization of the benefits from utilization of the resources within sustainable limits; (4) minimization of conflicts......

...Natural Resources and Environmental Regulations Natural Resources- Healthy Ecosystems Recognizing healthy ecosystems as the basis for sustainable water resources, and stable food security can help produce more food per unit of agricultural land, improve resilience to climate change, and provide economic benefits for poor communities. According to, a report, from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and The International Water Management Institute (IWMI): in partnership with 19 other organizations. As well as, the Stockholm Environment Institute, the Stockholm Resilience Centre. The report shows how managing and investing in the connections between ecosystems, water and food, through diversifying crops, planting trees on farmland improving rainwater collection, and other practical steps, could help avoid water scarcity, and meet the growing food demands of a global population set to reach 9 billion by 2050 (sei-international.org, 2011). When Scientist tries to understand how ecosystems function, it is not simply out of curiosity about the world. They also know that human society depends on healthy, functioning ecosystems. When Earth’s ecosystems function normally and undisturbed, the provide good and services that we could not survive without (Wilcott, Brennan, 2011, p 121). Nutrients to our farmlands, waters and air help ecosystems cycle through the chemical elements and compounds, that we need such as carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, water, and many more that......

...major U.S. law to address water pollution. Growing public awareness and concern for controlling water pollution led to sweeping amendments in 1972. As amended in 1972, the law became commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA). The 1972 amendments: • Established the basic structure for regulating pollutants discharges into the waters of the United States. • Gave EPA the authority to implement pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards for industry. • Maintained existing requirements to set water quality standards for all contaminants in surface waters. • Made it unlawful for any person to discharge any pollutant from a point source into navigable waters, unless a permit was obtained under its provisions. • Funded the construction of sewage treatment plants under the construction grants program. • Recognized the need for planning to address the critical problems posed by nonpoint source pollution. Subsequent amendments modified some of the earlier CWA provisions. Revisions in 1981 streamlined the municipal construction grants process, improving the capabilities of treatment plants built under the program. Changes in 1987 phased out the construction grants program, replacing it with the State Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund, more commonly known as the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. This new funding strategy addressed water quality needs by building on EPA-state partnerships. Over the years, many other laws......
