Punctuated equilibrium and the dynamics of U.S. environmental policy by Robert C Repetto( )

13 editions published between 1900 and 2008 in English and held by 1,186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents new empirical evidence that the punctuated equilibrium theory of policy dynamics fits the facts of environmental policy change and can explain how stable policies can suddenly unravel in discontinuous change. Every professional, activist, and student concerned with promoting - or resisting - change in environmental and natural resources policies will find this up-to-date book an invaluable guide."--Jacket
Public policies and the misuse of forest resources by Robert C Repetto( Book )

19 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents how government policies affecting taxation, credit, timber concessions, and public investment contribute to deforestation and the misuse of forest resources in both the developing and the developed worlds. Ten case studies - of the United States, Braxil, China, the Phillipines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Liberia, Ghana, Gabon, and the Ivory Coast - show how forests have bben sacrificed to make quick profits and how many such ventures are intrinsically uneconomic but are supported by generous public subsidies. The authors argue that deforestation results not just from population growth or landlessness, but also from misguided government decisions. They convincingly describe the serious fiscal and economic losses such decisions entail and propose policy changes that can preserve forest resources without interfering with other economic objectives
The forest for the trees? : government policies and the misuse of forest resources by Robert C Repetto( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experts have clearly established the extent of forest decline and likely economic, social and environmental consequences. They have also discussed deforestation's principal causes...This report goes further by showing how governments, committed in principle to conservation and wise resource use, are aggravating the losses of forests under their stewardship through mistaken policies. Such policies, by and large, were adopted for worthy objectives: industrial or agricultural growth, regional development, job creation, or poverty alleviation. But, this study finds such objectives typically have not been realized or have been attained only at excessive costs

America's climate problem : the way forward by Robert C Repetto( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What America does - or fails to do - in the next few years to solve the problem of climate change will largely determine the fate of the earth and humanity for centuries to come. Despite the efforts by some states, local governments and individual citizens to respond, controversy still embroils national efforts to come up with a solution. This book lets the reader cut through the confusion and political rhetoric and understand the way to resolve the climate problem. It explains in clear, accessible language how a sensible national policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions can bring about a transition to clean energy sources while preserving healthy economic growth and high standards of living. It shows where the pitfalls are in developing a climate solution, how they can be avoided, and how to bring resistant interest groups on board. America cannot act alone but other nations will not take action if the United States does not lead, and this book explains how America can successfully promote international cooperation on climate solutions

Pesticides and the immune system : the public health risks by Robert C Repetto( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are substantial grounds for concern about the public health risks from pesticide-induced suppression of the immune system, especially in less developed countries and countries in economic transition. The tonnage of pesticides used in these countries will continue increasing as agricultural production intensifies. Still widely used are chemicals with known acute and chronic toxicity -- including many older products that have been banned, severely restricted, or withdrawn from agricultural uses in the United States and Europe. In Japan, Europe, and the United States, there are also risks to farm workers and others significantly exposed to pesticides, though such groups make up much smaller fractions of total populations and, by and large, exposure levels are lower

Has environmental protection really reduced productivity growth? : we need unbiased measures by Robert C Repetto( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The indicators for economic productivity in the US began to lag in the early 1970s just when major new environmental laws came into effect. It has been argued that this layer of industrial regulation triggered the productivity slowdown. This report counters this argument by showing how the conventional measure of productivity growth misrepresents the industrial process by taking into account only pollution abatement costs and ignoring pollution damages averted by regulations. The authors propose an alternative, unbiased productivity measure and demonstrate how this methodological change recasts the productivity pictures in case studies of the electric power, pulp and paper and agricultural sectors
