Though the national movement itself is as well-funded and staffed as ever, its opponents are equally well-funded and better organized than ever before. Moreover, a gap remains between the more powerful national environmental groups and the grassroots that are at the core of political support for the environment. This book addresses the political, social, economic, and legal aspects of the environmental movement as it enters the 21st century. Relying on a series of interviews with scholars, politicians, environmental professionals, and activists, the book elucidates the issues and problems confronting today's environmental movement, as well as the movement's strengths and weaknesses.

Viewing environmental threats as symptoms of flaws in our society and its systems, he considers the urgent need for a broader, more inclusive environmentalism, and examines the role environmentalists can -- and must -- play in: reforming the education system taming the global economy and making it an instrument of human needs working for political reform, including reducing the influence of corporate spending on the electoral process directing the course of the scientific enterprise as well as making use of its results helping develop a new moral center for people throughout the nation and the world Throughout, Shabecoff emphasizes the need for national organizations to link together with grassroots groups and to become more responsive to local concerns, and argues that the environmental movement has not yet adequately prepared itself to meet current and coming challenges. He makes a compelling case that another wave of environmentalism is needed -- more powerful, diverse and sophisticated, visionary and flexible. Earth Risingoffers a detailed road map that can guide environmentalists toward that new and reenergized place in society.

Philip Shabecoff, a science writer for The New York Times for three decades, has reported on hundreds of environmental battles and controversies, bringing them to the attention of millions of readers. But his good work and that of his fellow environmental journalists has, Shabecoff suggests, gone unheeded--not by the citizenry, who are overwhelmingly in favor of legal measures to protect the environment, but by the forces of industry, commerce, and the mainstream media, which have enormous financial stakes in preserving the status quo. Environmental reportage, Shabecoff says, can only do so much in any event. After all, he notes, in the nearly 40 years since Rachel Carson warned in Silent Spring of the deadly effects of pesticides, "the use of synthetic substances that can sicken or kill people and wildlife has increased threefold." What is wanted, he urges in the pages of Earth Rising, is a well-coordinated "fourth wave" environmental movement that can bring aggressive political maneuvering, money, and irrefutable information to play against an array of foes. "Well-coordinated" is a key word, Shabecoff continues, for if at least 25 million Americans are involved in some way or another with environmental issues, either as grassroots activists or as dues-paying members of organizations from the Audubon Society to Earth First!, their efforts are not usually in concert, with the result that divide-and-conquer tactics on the part of, say, the logging and m biological sciences,biology,biology and life sciences,conservation,earth sciences,ecology,environment,environmental science,environmental studies,environmentalism Environmental Science, Island Press
