The Death of Environmentalism

While new to this forum of thinking and thoughts espoused by minds who are engaged in science, qualitative proof rules these minds. So they would see it far better to advance the cause of this global consensus as a necessary withdrawal from states of Fear, that enviromental terrorism that is espoused by Michael Crichton seeks to induce?

Now we know the fictional state of being, when making decisions, is very undersireable, so by putting forth the obvious movement to confront resistance(enviromental terrorism) in American perception, did Michael do the American resistance justice in applying the reasons why it has not move to part of this global thought?


Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus


Michael Shellenberger and Ted Nordhaus stirred up quite a fuss when they unveiled their essay "The Death of Environmentalism" last fall, declaring the environmental movement kaput and calling for a more visionary and inspiring progressive movement to take its place. In an interview with Grist, Shellenberger and Nordhaus talk about their ideas, the responses they've gotten (or haven't), and what comes next. Get the backstory here.



Global warming politics in a post-environmental world


By Peter Teague, Environment Program Director, Nathan Cummings Foundation
So long as the siren call of denial is met with the drone of policy expertise -- and the fantasy of technical fixes is left unchallenged -- the public is not just being misled, it's also being misread. Until we address Americans honestly, and with the respect they deserve, they can be expected to remain largely disengaged from the global transformation we need them to be a part of.


While I am very disturbed by the stance of American policies and the ideas protectionism has fostered, the challenge I see is to remove this fear driven state from the capitalize basis of that society where it's breed?

I was interested in how and why the American resistance might have been induced into that societies public perception?

Did Michael Crichton seek to induce such fears, by getting the causes of 911 fostered into enviromental terrorism? When some saw, that out of respect for that society, a different tactic needed to be looked at?

By calming the rise of fundamental differences between the global population, and it's retrospective glances at enviromentalist activism, this report on the Death of Enviromentalism sought to seek balance in others views, as well as the American population?
