This casebook integrates a legal assessment of energy resources with economic and environmental issues, thereby encouraging thoughtful analysis of energy policy issues confronting the U.S. and the world. Historical and contemporary legal issues confronting a range of energy resources are surveyed, including water power, coal, oil and gas, electricity, and nuclear power. Particular attention is paid to the need to reduce consumption of imported oil by motor vehicles. The third edition of the book contains considerable material on problems presented by climate change, including legal issues confronting renewable power projects and various conservation measures. We believe that the material can be taught in many different variations, and we continue to teach it in a somewhat different order every time it is offered.

Climate change has morphed from an environmental problem into a challenge to civilization itself. As CO2 levels have continued to rise, the 8th Edition of this book is now more relevant than ever. Retaining the approach of the original edition, the newest iteration features global warming as the framing example for a comprehensive look at environmental economics. Pedagogical clarity is ensured by the book’s central focus on four highly-focused questions: How much pollution is too much? Is the government up to the job? How can we do better? How can we resolve global issues? The text also continues with a strong focus on natural resources economics and ecosystem services. Updates to the book are included to address the very latest concerns, standards, and legislation related to environmental issues, providing students with a comprehensive look at this important topic while maintaining an accessible approach that makes the material engaging and highly relevant.
