“Environmental Failure: A Case for a New Green Politics”
Have you ever put much thought into what environmentalists have been doing? Where the Green Movement has been moving? Success? Failure?
Well, research “environmental movement” … it doesn’t exactly contain the fairytale ending so many might be hoping for… in fact, much worse than expected, too.
We quickly find out that, for lack of better words, scientists are freaking out.
Gives me anxiety…
Here’s an interesting interview/article outlining some of the issues we will face/have been facing:
“James Gustave Speth talks with Yale e360 about building a new environmentalism”
This is the opening line is,
“The U.S. environmental movement is failing – by any measure, the state of the earth has never been more dire. What’s needed, a leading environmentalist writes, is a new, inclusive green politics that challenges basic assumptions about consumerism and unlimited growth.”

But what’s most interesting is the audio recording on the website. Listen to it. It’s powerful.
Speth walks the listener through the history of the environmental movement, his personal experiences leading the movement, expresses failures and successes, an objective look, etc….
His testimony is well heard. Climate change is more alarming than we thought.
How does this make you feel?
What do you think should be done?
Daunting… I know.
