[greenyes] The Death of Environmentalism


Dear Green Yessers-

Some of you may be familiar with the white paper presented at the
Environmental Grantsmakers Association retreat last October. The paper was
called ³The Death of Environmentalism.² I read it with extreme interest just
after the ³election,² and it got me thinking about what environmentalism
really is (especially historically). It may be a rather attention getting,
over-simplified argument, but there are some very important kernels of truth
to be found in the authors¹ arguments.

The main point of the paper is that mainstream environmental groups have not
been successful in raising national awareness and political interest in
Global Warming. Forget the George Bush cabal for now, just have a
conversation with a non-environmental professional in your neighborhood.
Anyway, I have a six-part essay that just started at
<http://getunderground.com/> which is an attempt to organize my thoughts
and ask questions for us all about the future of American environmentalism.
If you¹re interested, check it out. If you want a pointer to the actual
Death paper, the first sentence in Part I of the essay should take you
there. Parts II-VI will be published every two weeks through December.

I hope you all are well and that those in Rita¹s path stay safe this
weekend.
