Abstract

It is time to conform U.S. environmental laws to the worldwide goal of sustainable development. The true end of environmental laws is not merely to correct “market failures” or to “clean up” air, water, and waste, but to “respond to the needs of the present without compromising the capacity of future generations to satisfy their needs” — in the words of the 1987 report of the World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future.
