Green Backlash: Global Subversion of the Environment Movement Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tide is now turning against the environmental movement as the political right, affluent industries, and cash-strapped governments are fighting back. Green Backlash is a controversial expose of the anti-environmental movement which is now gathering steam around the globe.

More than an analysis, Green Backlash is an insider's account of this controversial struggle over the future of the earth and its precious resources, revealing in gross detail to what great lengths corporations will go to serve and to protect their own interests. Tracing the rise of the backlash movement from the Wise Use proponents and growth in the United States, the author reveals its increasing popularity and rapid spread worldwide through the anti-roads movement in the United Kingdom, the scathing forestry debates in Canada and Australia, and the heated conflicts over marine resources in Europe and South East Asia.

Revealing how violence, physical and legal threats, and international scapegoating and polarization have suppressed activism throughout the world, the author draws on interviews with leading environmentalists and researchers to track right wing and corporate activity.

As the resource wars intensify the backlash is set to get worse. This book offers a greater understanding of the challenges and threats facing global environmentalism, and urges the reader to re-evaluate the environmental movement in light of the power struggle currently underway.
