Why is it that Americans on either side of the aisle seem indifferent to environmental issues good or bad when they’re very far away? Whether it’s toxic pollution in the Yangtze River or the expansion of protected ocean, we should care more. Not that we shouldn’t be up in arms about the Keystone XL pipeline or the de-listing of wolves from the endangered species list… But unless the issue is in our backyard, or is intolerably cute (sorry fish), it’s more than likely not going to get much attention. »from ‘Expanding Pacific Ocean Sanctuaries' by Margaret Hedderman

'The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act makes it illegal to interfere with a company’s profits. If a factory farm employee records abuse at their facility and shares it with the message that people should not purchase meat from that company, they are a terrorist and can go to jail. According to animal rights journalist Will Potter, if convicted, these “terrorists” are sent to special Communications Management Units in US prisons reserved for prisoners with “inspirational significance.”'

'The rising tide of ag-gag legislation being drafted to be passed into law, not only in other US states and other countries like Australia but across other industries, will further push the attitude of environmental activists as “political others,” radicals not to be negotiated with, dangerous at worst and irrational at best.'

Creative Strat Post #1
Greenwashing: A form of spin in which green PR or green marketing is deceptively used to promote the perception that an organization’s aims and policies are environmentally friendly. Whether it is to increase profits or gain political support, greenwashing may be used to manipulate popular opinion to support otherwise questionable aims.

'The Earth Day of the 21st century, however, is quite different from that of the 1970s. In the beginning, it was a distinctly grassroots movement. Today, nearly every major brand and corporation in the country goes green, in something now known as ‘greenwashing.’ Capitalising on our nation’s consumerist tendencies, corporations use a day for heightened environmental awareness to promote their eco-friendly products.'
