    important question to me as I now consider myself an environmentalist.  This is the "career" that I have finally prepared to commit to.  A big change for a boy raised amongst the glitz of a big city, where money, fame and toys define your status.  As such, I'm wondering now if I really am making a difference and what I can do to make the biggest impact while being able to live my life in the urban realm.  Is it possible to be an environmentalist in a big city, where we are so dependent on "consumption"

    suggests that the Ehrlichs should revise their rhetorical strategy in The Population Bomb because it is ineffective in attracting readers to their argument. Particularly problematic are the Ehrlichs’ alienating attitude towards non-educated non-environmentalists in his audience, a lack of both an inviting ethos, and a lack of compassion for the reader. Since the goal of a book is usually to inform or persuade readers, the Ehrlichs’ book does not serve its purpose and is therefore ineffective. The same

    the environment are rooted in my belief in creation. I do not believe that life on earth began spontaneously, nor do I believe that the earth is so delicately balanced. I don’t believe that the earth and its ecosystem are fragile. Many radical environmentalists do, they believe man can come along, all by themselves and change everything for worse. After hundreds of millions of years, they believe that we are the last two generations of human existence. And they think we can destroy the earth all by

Duplantier. Radical Environmentalism is now a common term in our vocabulary. When you here the term what do you think about?

    suburbs are feeling. Sprawl is even less attractive to urban residents who are left behind and involuntarily subsidize the outward migration through their taxes. The sprawl debate has opened social fault lines across the nation. Developers and environmentalists spar over sprawl in court. Suburban leaders guard their bounty of businesses and jobs while city leaders clamor for a share. Inner-ring suburbanites hunker down to preserve their American dream while outer-ring suburbanites demand their slice
