How has environmental regulation changed to respond to increasingly complicated environmental problems? In this video RegNet scholar Neil Gunningham traces the journey from 1970s environmental command and control regulation to collaborative environmental governance strategies used today.
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) find it harder to comply with environmental legislation than larger companies. In general, the smaller the company, the more difficult it is. Often SMEs are not aware of their environmental obligations - but they are also unaware of the benefits of being green: new market opportunities and cost savings. The European Commission proposed an Environmental Compliance Assistance Programme (ECAP) to make it easier for SMEs to comply with their obligations and improve their environmental performances. The following links are mentioned throughout the video: - ECAP website section dedicated to EU legislation (4’30): http://ec.europa.eu/environment/sme/l... - ECAP website section dedicated to best practices (12’50): http://ec.europa.eu/environment/sme/c......
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The United States' fragmented, piecemeal approach to environmental law is presented through the cases that led to the creation of major environmental statutes such as the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. The variety of federal agencies and levels of government that participate in creating and implementing regulation contribute to the fragmentation of American environmental law. Environmental law seeks to balance the costs of environmental degradation with the economic benefits that companies reap. However, the uncertainty of environmental costs leads to a slow and ineffective regulation process. 00:00 - Chapter 1. A Course About Defining and Solving Problems 04:09 - Chapter 2.

Dr Mroczek returns with another lecture about the massively deleterious environment we are living in and discussing some of the many ills that plague it and we, the people: ills such as pesticided and artificially preserved foods, detergents we use, plastics per their manufacture and ill effects on us all the way to the recycling bin, industrial solvents, etc, etc. She notes the increasing number of children born with disease and/or abnomalities and the plethora of health ailments such as cancer and neurological disorder plaguing the general population. Dr Mroczek emphasizes awareness as the key. That is, if we all saw these things, took note of them as we live our daily lives, the contaminations and travesties against natural living would cease to exist. Dr Mroczek discusses the media...

In order to maintain a stable internal environment (homeostasis) all organ systems must work together and communicate effectively. A series of feedback loops (both positive and negative) are necessary to pull this off. This video will discuss processes such as thermoregulation (body temperature), blood glucose levels, and osmolarity (water in the body).

Nim Tottenham, associate professor of psychology at Columbia University, gave this talk at Neurons to Neighborhoods. Carnegie Mellon University’s BrainHub brought some of the nation’s leading early childhood development experts together with local and state policymakers and practitioners for its first Neurons to Neighborhoods community outreach event. With funding support from The Heinz Endowments, the event was designed to help the community of early care and education providers, government officials and other specialists learn how to effectively understand the latest early brain development research and apply this evidence-based information to their everyday practice and policy-making decisions.

Dr Mroczek continues her efforts to inform about environmental degradation and the travesty that it is. Here she talks about the mutiple insults to our environment such as agricultural runoff, radioactivity, and marine dead zones ; genetically engineered sterile seeds; salt used on roadways; roundup in our soil; bad human attitudes toward all insects; and commercial conditionings that further obfuscate awareness. Dr Mroczek proposes that though the many many environmental woes are depressing to focus on, if we all carry the consciousness of them together they would not exist nor would they be the depressants to mood, life, and liberty that they are. Finally she discounts technology as any sort of salvation to these problems which can only be solved by abandonment of much of what is caus...
