- There are some existing problems of Chinese environmental criminal law in the fields of legislative idea, justification, accuracy of specific crime and efficacy of deterrent effect of punishment, and the key reason that leads to these problems is the old-fashioned legislative idea and purpose. Lawmaker in China ought to accept the doctrine of Ecocentrism, rediscover the social significance and functions of criminal law, rethink the thought of Last Resort, and adopt the idea of criminal protection in advance and priority for prevention. According to these ideas, enlarging the criminalization scope, improving the accuracy and specification of environmental Crimes and increasing the amount of punishment will become the main developing trend of Chinese environmental criminal law.
