Abstract:

Congress designed the current CAA around two fundamental misunderstandings about air pollution, misunderstandings that make the statute clumsy and that hinder further attempts at emissions reductions. The authors describe a new approach that could solve these problems and allow Congress to dramatically streamline the CAA. They conclude with a word on GHG control.
