Why Is Environmental Policy So Hard to Implement?

Why is it so difficult to achieve effective environmental policy in the United States? Is it just a lack of willpower, or is there a little more to it?

On this episode of The Sweaty Penguin, we explore some of the lesser-discussed procedural barriers to environmental policy development such as the amendment process, the recent preference for omnibus bills, and certain state preemptions, and consider if there are ways around these challenges to allow for more innovative, nuanced, and popular environmental policy in the future. With special guest David Johnson: Lecturer in Law at Stanford University.
