In this Article, LeRoy C. Paddock examines the issue of green governance by looking at several of the changes that are driving the need for new approaches, the long series of studies calling for reform in environmental governance, and four case examples involving impaired waters, urban ozone and particulate pollution, brownfields rehabilitation, and nanotechnology. He concludes with suggestions about how to more effectively integrate economics-based and values-based tools into the way government approaches environmental problem solving.
