Abstract

This article explores how deeply held philosophies and environmental risk allocation are "real" values in terms of enivronmental impacts, and as such should be considered under NEPA. If this were the case, this would make the operation of NEPA more transparent and efficient.

Keywords: NEPA, environment, environmental law, risk, risk allocation, environmental philosophy, harm
