Green Backlash: Global Subversion of the Environment Movement (Paperback)Andrew Rowell (author)
- We can order this
Green Backlash is a controversial expose of the anti-environmental movement. Tracing the rise of the backlash from the Wise Use movement in the USA, the author reveals its rapid spread worldwide: the anti-roads movement in the UK, forestry debates in Canada and Australia, marine resource issues in Europe, South-East Asia, and controversies such as the Brent Spar.
The backlash is set to get worse as the resource wars intensify. This book offers a greater understanding of the challenges and threats facing global environmentalism, concluding that the environmental movement now has a chance to re-evaluate and change for the better to beat the backlash - a chance that must not be missed.

..." disturbing ... In "Green Backlash--which I heartily recommend to anyone concerned about the environment--Rowell concludes that the environmental movement must start to put forward positive solutions, not just call attention to problems."
