Environment and the Law: A Sea of Ambiguity (William Rogers)

  • 1988 ----- color ----- 28 min ----- vhs///
  • (Upon Reflection series) Host Al Page talks with University of Washington Law Professor William H. Rogers. Professor Rogers discusses the difficulties of effective environmental legislation; deliberate ambiguity in the law, endless litigation over ambiguous laws, the hesitancy of the Judiciary to render clear decision, the distortion of the law by agencies empowered to enforce it; who will pay for clean up--the public or the polluters; the constant creation and dissolution of coalitions attempting to pass or defeat environmental legislation.
