Green warriors

£3.99

Product description

As the century comes to a close and we begin to comprehend the scale and brutality of our assaults on the planet, environmentalists are on the march as never before. All around the world their organizations are beginning to be taken seriously as the need for a new global order establishes itself in the public imagination. But who are these environmental activists and how have they won their position of power?;In "Green Warriors" Fred Pearce probes the origins, philosophies and motivations of this handful of campaigners whose activities increasingly dominate the political agenda. He looks at the people behind the worldwide network of environmental groups: the lawyers, engineers and media professionals who gave up lucrative careers for the low-paid excitement of the green movement; the radical priests and their green flocks fighting land barons who turned forests into low-grade pasture across Latin America; the angry scientist driven to public platforms to explain their fears for the future of the planet.;And, with Greenpeace a billion-dollar organization claiming that ecology could become the first "science-religion", Fred Pearce asks where the green movement is going and suggests how it might fashion its agenda for the 90s and beyond.
