New frontiers in environmental law

Can new technology help us reduce carbon dioxide emissions? Is “fracking” contributing to groundwater contamination in Texas? What is the cost of noncompliance with the EPA’s oil spill cleanup rules?

From groundbreaking initiatives to the aftermath of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the environment — and environmental law — is taking center stage. The May issue of the Texas Bar Journal focuses on new frontiers in natural resource management and the Texas attorneys who are on the front lines.
