The Dilemma of the Environmentalist
The problems with environmental legislation run several layers deep. With a system built against people like environmentalists, a powerful adversary like industry is just too difficult to overcome. The same goes for governmental institutions like the DOE. How can the environmentalists fight an area of government which sets its own limitations and doesn't really care what happens to the surrounding area. Environmentalists are stuck in a perilous situation, they have little government support, and are unable to increase that support because they cannot get elected in strong numbers. It is a frustrating situation which offers little hope. However, the one hope that environmentalists must cling to is the American public. Although they are greatly indifferent to environmental policy, if the American public can become aware of the dangers that the country, as well as the world, must face, then there is a chance that a change can come about.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
