Acid Earth

Acid rain was one of the major environmental issues of the 1980s. But while industrialized countries have taken measures to reduce the emissions that lead to acidification, the problems have not gone away. Trees are still dying, lakes are still being made uninhabitable; buildings are still corroding; and human health is still suffering. The most worrying trend is the repetition in the industrializing countries of Asia and Latin America of the problems that have long afflicted Europe and North America. More than 10 years after it was first published, the highly acclaimed Acid Earth still provides the only global view of acidification, and remains the standard text on the subject. Chapters on the causes, effects and growing scientific understanding of acid pollution, and the possible solutions, are followed by detailed studies of the political struggles involved in responding to acid damage in western and eastern Europe, the US and the newly industrializing countries. Written in non-technical language for people interested in the problems of the environment, Acid Earth calls for a renewed sense of public and political will to bring the problems of acid pollution under control. The book also makes valuable reading for specialists and students. Originally published in 1992

Greening International Jurisprudence: Environmental NGOs before International Courts, Tribunals, and Compliance Committees examines how international judicial and quasi-judicial bodies enforce international environmental law, with particular consideration to the role of environmental NGOs. Author Cathrin Zengerling analyses the institutional structure as well as the environmental case law from a total of fourteen international courts, arbitral tribunals, and compliance committees with special focus on accessibility, comprehensiveness, and transparency. Underlying this analysis is the fundamental question of whether the respective body appropriately contributes to the realization of democratic governance for sustainable development. After presenting her core findings, the author provides concrete recommendations for future best practices and discusses the need for a new World Environment Court.

Die Verregelung gesellschaftlicher Beziehungen auf innerstaatlicher und internationaler Ebene hat in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten stark zugenommen. Internationale Regimes wie auch innerstaatliche Normen und Regeln entstehen vielfach in unkoordinierter Weise, was bisweilen zu Inkompatibilitäten und Konflikten zwischen den beteiligten Akteuren führt. Bei steigender Regulierungsdichte stellt sich die bislang in der Disziplin der Internationalen Beziehungen kaum untersuchte Frage, wie regulatorische Eingriffe in verschiedenen Politikbereichen und auf unterschiedlichen Ebenen miteinander koordiniert und harmonisiert werden können. Die Autoren dieses Buches entwickeln einen theoretischen und methodischen Rahmen zur Analyse der Frage nach der Kompatibilität internationaler Regimes und ihren Folgen und evaluieren diesen anhand von Fallstudien zur Beziehung zwischen Handelsliberalisierung und Umweltschutz.

Climate Change Policy in North America

While no supranational institutions exist to govern climate change in North America, a system of cooperation among a diverse range of actors and institutions is currently emerging. Given the range of interests that influence climate policy across political boundaries, can these distinct parts be integrated into a coherent, and ultimately resilient system of regional climate cooperation? Climate Change Policy in North America is the first book to examine how cooperation respecting climate change can emerge within decentralized governance arrangements. Leading scholars from a variety of disciplines provide in-depth case studies of climate cooperation initiatives – such as emissions trading, energy cooperation, climate finance, carbon accounting and international trade – as well as analysis of the institutional, political, and economic conditions that influence climate policy integration.
