It would be hard to argue that the environmental movement, which began in earnest in the 1960s, and despite several successes in the 1970s, has failed. Today, the Clean Water Act has been ignored with fracking, Fukushima is releasing millions of gallons of radioactive water into the ocean with no end in sight, countries are racing to begin drilling in the arctic which is only possible because of the warming planet.

The warnings of environmentalists have not been heeded. Perhaps it is time to take a look at the approach. Maybe our habitual responses to the issues are part of the problem. In this short video, Charles Eisenstein explains how taking a closer look at how we respond and communicate about the environmental crises might illuminate a new pathway forward.
