9780300119848: Saving Our Environment from Washington: How Congress Grabs Power, Shirks Responsibility, and Shortchanges the People (RN)

Through vivid tales of the pollution wars, a veteran environmental advocate shows that the Environmental Protection Agency is so big and remote that it must fail the environment and our society. David Schoenbrod reaches the surprising conclusion that we should strip the EPA of its power to dictate to the nation and replace it with bottom-up” environmental protection now. 
"A terrific, albeit disturbing, read. Only someone with Schoenbrod’s unique combination of legal, political, and practical expertise could write so insightfully about environmental politics." Morris P. Fiorina, Stanford University "Schoenbrod makes a compelling case that, by delegating lawmaking responsibility to government agencies, Congress has imposed huge costs on the economy and bad choices on the environment." John Berlau, Wall Street Journal
