Praise for Breaking the Logjam

“The old environmental laws and approaches have run their course, and we urgently need an intensive period of environmental law reform. That’s the message of this insightful, stimulating book. . . . A must read.”

James Gustave Speth, Member and Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality, 1977–1981, and author of Red Sky at Morning and The Bridge at the Edge of the World


“Breaking the Logjam is a thoughtful, deliberative, easy-to-read digest about the state of environmental policy today. With specific proposals, the authors add their authoritative voices to the call for a more robust statutory framework to enable the country to achieve further environmental progress, which at the moment is stalled and needs to be rekindled.”

William K. Reilly, Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1989–1993

“The authors remind us that a number of our environmental laws are not achieving their important goals. Breaking the Logjam documents the power of well-regulated markets to achieve significant improvements in air quality and challenges us to incorporate those lessons more broadly, hopefully provoking a valuable national discussion on these complex issues.”

Fred Krupp, President, Environmental Defense Fund

“Ambitious, balanced, and engaging, Breaking the Logjam itself breaks new ground by offering Congress a timely and much-needed blueprint for addressing the nation’s most pressing environmental problems, including climate change.”

Richard J. Lazarus, author of The Making of Environmental Law
