Annotation Just over two decades ago, research findings that environmentally hazardous facilities were more likely to be sited near poor and minority communities gave rise to the environmental justice movement. Yet inequitable distribution of the burdens of industrial facilities and pollution is only half of the problem; poor and minority communities are often denied the benefits of natural resources and can suffer disproportionate harm from decisions about their management and use. Justice and Natural Resourcesis the first book devoted to exploring the concept of environmental justice in the realm of natural resources. Contributors consider how decisions about the management and use of natural resources can exacerbate social injustice and the problems of disadvantaged communities. Looking at issues that are predominantly rural and western -- many of them involving Indian reservations, public lands, and resource development activities -- it offers a new and more expansive view of environmental justice. The book begins by delineating the key conceptual dimensions of environmental justice in the natural resource arena. Following the conceptual chapters are contributions that examine the application of environmental justice in natural resource decision-making. Chapters examine: how natural resource management can affect a range of stakeholders quite differently, distributing benefits to some and burdens to others the potential for using civil rights laws to address damage to natural and cultural resources the unique status of Native American environmental justice claims parallels between domestic and international environmental justice how authority under existing environmental law can be used by Federal regulators and communities to address a broad spectrum of environmental justice concerns Justice and Natural Resourcesoffers a concise overview of the field of environmental justice and a set of frameworks for understanding it. It expands the previously urban and industrial scope of the movement to include distribution of the burdens and access to the benefits of natural resources, broadening environmental justice to a truly nationwide concern

The Bill of Rights : a bicentennial assessment by Gary C Bryner( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is little agreement over what role rights should play in addressing these and other pressing contemporary issues. From one view, rights are a politically powerful way to expand government protection for certain interests. Critics, however, fear that an expansion of rights threatens traditional ones. The process of defining, interpreting, and extending rights is therefore almost as controversial as the substantive issues themselves. Several questions provide the overall agenda for the essays in this book: What rights do people have? How are they determined? How do they shape and define the powers of government? What particular challenges does the protection of minority rights pose? How are rights secured? And, finally, what is the future of rights?

Integrating climate, energy, and air pollution policies by Gary C Bryner( Book )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of the interconnectedness of nature is at the heart of environmental science. By contrast, American policy making and governance are characterized by fragmentation. Separation of powers, divergent ideologies, and geographical separation all work against a unified environmental policy. Nowhere does this mismatch between problem and solution pose a greater challenge than in climate change policy, which has implications for energy use, air quality, and such related areas as agriculture and land use. This book stresses the importance of environmental policy integration at all levels of government. It shows that effectively integrated climate, energy, and air pollution policy would ensure that tradeoffs are clear, that policies are designed to maximize and coordinate beneficial effects, and that implementation takes into account the wide range of related issues. The authors focus on four major climate-change policy issues: burning coal to generate electricity, increasing the efficiency and use of alternative energy, reducing emissions from transportation, and understanding agriculture's role in both generating and sequestering greenhouse gases. Going beyond specific policy concerns, the book provides a framework, based on the idea of policy integration, for assessing future climate-change policy choices
Protecting the global environment by Gary C Bryner( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Borne of an amalgam of social science, fieldwork, and a passionate commitment to justice, this book brings debates about climate change to a new level, compelling readers and researchers to rethink the reasons for reversing global environmental trends. The book lays out three inspirations for improving environmental prospects: effective markets, sustainable development, and environmental justice for the most vulnerable. It also projects three possible scenarios flowing from the success or failure of these inspirations - one bleak, one breakthrough, and one of status quo. Gary Bryner is not sanguine about humanity's ability to make the right choices, but this does not deter him from asking us to think beyond our own generation and our own species in urging environmental action now."--Pub. desc
