EU Environmental Laws May Catch Up Someday

We already have them, and have since the early '70s. You know, that whole series of environmental laws sparked by the Love Canal.

Now, some 30+ years later, our neighbors across the pond are implementing similar legislation. The European Union has adopted "polluter pays" legislation, slated to go into effect in three years for the 15 EU members.

This legislation is not retroactive. In the U.S., our pollutions laws are. The EU has been trying since 1980 to get this legislation passed. The EU offers a number of links about the development of this law.

According to the various studies, there are 300,000 polluted sites throughout Europe, and it will take $135 billion to clean up.
