Examines several cases in which the US Supreme Court has seemingly failed to perceive the substantive content of federal environmental law by analysing: 1) the NEPAs treatment in Strycker's Bay Neighborhood Council v Karlen; and 2) the handling of two Clean Air Act cases in Train v NRDC and Union Electric v EPA. Concludes that these cases reveal a hostility to environmental values and a failure in the courts role to protect them. -from Authors
