I’ve heard environmentalism described by Walter Starck as a quasi-religious blend of new-age nature worship, junk science, left-wing political activism and anti-profit economics.
While this description may apply to some deep green activists, it’s also true to say that we are all environmentalists now.
But most Australians have little say in the environmental policies being put to government. These policies are almost exclusively the domain of a tight network of conservation groups with a particular world view.
But the Australian Environment Foundation (AEF) is different.
At the first Conference and AGM for the Australian Environment Foundation, Mike Archer will plead for, what he describes as the revolution we must have – between the ears and on the land – in our approach to sustaining environments as well as rural and regional communities in a changing world.
Now, do your bit for the environment, copy this image to your website or blog:
I’m a director of the AEF.
