Tort of Ecological Degradation

The following MP3 was recorded on Thursday, July 31, 2008.

Joe Guth

America permits environmental damage unless the responsible action can be shown not to provide a net social benefit. This allows legally justified environmental damage to grow without limit. The law should be redesigned to constrain environmental damage to an ecologically sustainable scale. Guth proposes a tort of ecological degradation to redirect the economy onto a sustainable path.
