The right to local self-government must be asserted that places decisions affecting communities in the hands of those closest to the impacts. That right to local self-government must enable communities to reject unsustainable economic and environmental policies set by state and federal governments, and must enable communities to construct legal frameworks for charting a future towards sustainable energy production, sustainable land development, and sustainable water use, among others.
Over one hundred communities in several sections of the country are challenging states having the last say as to how communities can protect their communities from violation by such things as factory hog farms, landfills, sludge disposal sites, and power lines. This is a talk by Thomas Linzey, Executive Director of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, given at Franconia, NH in January 26, 2012, on what must be done to secure this protection.
