Abstract

This article analyses fear and loathing in the San Juan Islands through the example of endangered orcas and the legitimacy of environmental law. It suggests that significant component of the opposition to these regulations stemmed from a widespread distrust and fear of the federal government. Given the arguable need for robust state action to protect the environment, on the sea as well as on land, these ambient fears are significant, and pose notable obstacles to the legitimacy of environmental law
