The evolution of hazardous waste programs : lessons from eight countries by Katherine N Probst( )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In most countries, the development of environmental programs follows a similar pattern. Early efforts concentrate on direct threats to public health, such as contaminated drinking water and air pollution. Only after these problems are addressed does the need to improve day-to-day management of hazardous wastes reach the top of the environmental agenda. In this new report, RFF?s Katherine Probst and Thomas Beierle compare the development of hazardous waste management programs in eight countries--the United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Thailand--and dis
Footing the bill for Superfund cleanups : who pays and how? by Katherine N Probst( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the initial incidence of the cleanup costs that private parties often have to bear, the transaction costs that accompany the cleanup costs, and the special taxes created under Superfund. Considers the administrative and complicance costs associated with these taxes. Examines the short-term financial implications of changes in liability and taxes on key sectors affected by Superfund: chemicals, oil, mining, and commercial property-casualty insurers
Superfund's future : what will it cost? : a report to Congress by Katherine N Probst( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most contentious issues in the recent congressional debate about the reauthorization of Superfund concerns how much money EPA needs for its implementation in the years to come. To provide some guidance for this discussion, the U.S. Congress asked Resources for the Future (RFF) to conduct an independent study of the program's future costs. The results of this research are included in Superfund's future. In this book, lead researchers Kate Probst and David Konisky provide estimates of EPA's likely expenditures for Superfund for each fiscal year from 2000 to 2009. The authors estimate the costs for the cleanup of sites currently on the National Priorities List (NPL), the cleanup cost of sites to be added to the NPL, and the day-to-day cost of implementing the Superfund program. They also address the issue of uncertainty in their cost estimates. Much of the controversy about the cost of Superfund concerns questions as to whether the program is beginning to ramp down, whether this will translate into a decreasing need for federal funds, and, if so, when? The political backdrop is complex. Some seek a major overhaul and reauthorization of the statute, arguing that considerable cleanup still needs to be done. Others oppose major changes, arguing that cleanup is almost complete. Probst and Konisky discuss these different perspectives in light of the policy choices most likely to have a dramatic effect on future costs of the program
Assigning liability for Superfund cleanups : an analysis of policy options by Katherine N Probst( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While more than 2,700 emergency removals of hazardous materials have taken place under Superfund, implementing the long-term cleanup program has been the object of considerable controversy. One of the most contentious issues is whether the liability standards in the law should be revised. The authors analyze the pros and cons associated with the current liability approach, as well as with a variety of alternative strategies
Long-term stewardship and the nuclear weapons complex : the challenge ahead by Katherine N Probst( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Decades of U.S. nuclear weapons production have exacted a heavy environmental toll. The Department of Energy estimates that cleaning up waste and contamination resulting from production activities will cost over 150 billion. Yet even once that money is spent, these sites will need long-term attention to assure protection of human health and the environment. In the authors' words, stewardship refers to 'institutions, information, and strategies needed to ensure protection of people and the environment, both in the short and the long term.' Probst and McGovern make a compelling case for establi
