Speaking of the alleged death of environmentalism, ONE/Northwest has a few discussions thereof, introduced here, including some righteous umbrage from Tim Greyhavens, Executive Director of Wilburforce Foundation and Aron Thompson, ONE/Northwest board member. ONE’er Jon Stahl also links to this piece in the Tyee, which discusses the stuff from a Canadian perspective.
For various reasons, I find all the responses unsatisfying. A lot of it just amounts to, “No we’re not!” and “We must redouble our efforts!” There’s talk about a more positive, inclusive vision, but what is it?
It so happens I’m hard at work on an editorial on just that question, so all the questions will soon be answered and the debate will be called off. Ha ha.
