This article examines Obama administration sustainability initiatives and surveys U.S. Supreme Court federalism jurisprudence in an effort to explain how this White House has exploited the Court's evolving anti-New Deal Federalism to facilitate and accommodate post-modernist local environmental & social sustainability initiatives at the U.S. state and local levels that attenuate private property rights and subjugate them to putative public interests.
Keywords: sustainability, new deal federalism, anti-new deal federalism, U.S. Supreme Court, White House, attenuated private property rights
