One of our most venerable environmental statutes, the National Environmental Policy Act NEPA, requires that the federal government assess and publicly disclose the environmental impact of its actions. If the impact might be significant, the government must investigate, respond to public comments and compare alternatives. Many states, and other countries, have similar laws. For some cases involving the question of whether NEPA applies to greenhouse gas emissions, see Global Warming and the Courts PDFp. 1114. A court in Austrialia, however, recently ruled that the impact that large projects have on global warming such as the coal mine planned for Anvil Hill viewed above must be considered.

A group of citizens challenged the mine, arguing that government had to consider both the direct consequences of the mining, as well as the dow canada goose online uk nstream impacts particularly the burning of the coal, even though much of it would be burned overseas.

Although the judge refused to interfere with the approval process for the mine, she ruled that the downstream impacts must be considered. The decision may not stop the Anvil mine itself, but climate activists believe it will have significant consequence on future developments.
