Deregulation and the environmental cycle

Pursuing a robust and steady environmental policy does not come naturally to British governments. Needed institutional reforms are often postponed, failures in existing policies tend to go uncorrected, emerging environmental problems are not addressed in good time, and environmental measures are commonly subordinated to bigger or more fashionable ideas - until the accumulation of deferred initiatives approaches monster proportions. All this helps to account for the tendency of environmental policy to run in cycles.
