Abstract

The issue of environmental sustainability is a controversial and extremely diverse multi-faceted topic that ranges from questions as to how to ensure that adequate investment in energy R&D and infrastructure will be undertaken, to state level renewable portfolio standards, to the impact of pollution havens on legislation that would enhance industrial greenhouse gas emission standards, to economic resilience to hurricane hazards, and to EPA policies. This paper summarizes seven studies that are devoted to exploring various aspects of the remarkably complex and diverse dimensions of environmental sustainability.
