Criticisms: sources?[edit]

The material on James Lovelock is pertinent, but I agree, needs sourcing. Please document references. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 14:13, 23 June 2012 (UTC)

Add reference here, or where?[edit] (talk) 06:50, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

As a reference for what? References are used to support content and usually (or should be) provided when the content is added. Vsmith (talk) 12:27, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Article structure[edit]

Thanks for efforts to globalize this article. In it's current, more geographically diverse form, some article restructuring is needed, in my opinion. After the article lead, it now jumps right in to environmentalism in the U.S. Before it does so, though, some broader, definitional elaboration would be helpful, such as the material currently later in the article on 'scope of the movement'. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:46, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Have made a few tweaks, towards further globalizing the article. Despite the helpful additions, it remains US-centric and in need of further restructuring. Some of the material in the US section may be more appropriate in the Environmental movement in the United States article. A summary of key perspectives from related articles on Australia, New Zealand and South Africa would be useful to add here, too. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 11:01, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
Article structure remains rather jumbled, with broad overview information, then country-specific information, then topical information. There are, in my opinion, probably too many different -- and diverse -- subtopics included within this article at present. Reorganization needed...

Proposed merge with Ecology movement[edit]

The following discussion is closed. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section. A summary of the conclusions reached follows.
The result of this discussion was to merge Ecology movement into Environmental movement. Karmos (talk) 05:41, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Two different names; same movement DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 17:47, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

I agree, it's two names for the same movement Gor (talk) 07:21, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

I can see certain people wanting to distinguish a narrower "ecology movement" from the broader "environmental movement," but as it stands I see complete overlap between the two articles. I'm for the merge. Karmos (talk) 05:35, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Deep green environmentalism[edit]

In the text it states: Deep Ecology is an ideological spinoff of the ecology movement that views the diversity and integrity of the planetary ecosystem, in and for itself, as its primary value.

Can we add: Followers of this ideology can be called deep green environmentalists ?

In the Deep green environmentalism article, we can then put the following: Similar to dark greens, "deep greens" put most of the blame of the current environmental problems on the industry, and also follow an anti-consumerist ideology. For individuals, they advocate adopting a simple/low-tech lifestyle, yet accept using green technologies whenever this is not possible. They also follow a non-anthropocentric environmental ideology. They also believe that the collapse of the current society, due to environmental difficulties, is at hand and thus also prepare for this collapse. (talk) 09:13, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

neutrality of critisism[edit]

neutrality of critisism is really quetionable — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:40, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

Several examples of anti-environmental bias exist throughout Wikipedia. This issue is now being discussed here. Jarble (talk) 05:06, 7 January 2015 (UTC)

I feel as though this section forgot to mention many critics that pertain to the Environmental Movement for example: to being with in the Intro- the role of colonialism, capitalism, and corporations in environmental effects. I agree with the remarks on the neutrality of the criticisms of U.S. environmental movements because elitism of U.S. environmental projects is not addressed, and how U.S. environmental movements too often fail to address how environmental issues directly affect indigenous people in the U.S. and globally because of the property they reside on, something also referred to as environmental racism. The fact that even if the U.S. and other countries sign global environmental treaties they do not implement these guidelines, or how sometimes countries don't even sing these treaties such as China is not mentioned. It should be noted on the Latin America section that in recent years a crisis of murders of environmental activist has rose such as the case in Honduras with Berta Caceres and also in Asian countries. The book “First Along the River” serves as a brief history of U.S. environmental movement and elitism. and can offer some insight into the surge of killings of environmental activist, on you can find a report called <ref>“How Many More? 116 Environmental Defenders Were Murdered Last Year, Mostly in Latin America” <ref> ( Marimara93 (talk) 23:56, 18 September 2016 (UTC) )

Terms suggested by user:Gravuritas[edit]

user:Gravuritas gave some terms while editing. (see Edit History) I googled "Rag & bone environment", I found this: [1] & with "responsible care management system", this: [2]. Not sure if it is the right content. (I might add it when I have time. You can add it if you want...) -- Petorial (talk) 03:52, 6 April 2014 (UTC)

Sorry if I was rather short & cryptic in the edit note. I thought that the claims that interest in recycling etc was new, and business's interest in environmental issues was new, were inaccurate. The responsible care management system was launched by the chemical industry in 1986, for instance. And 'Rag and Bone' men drove round the streets in the UK, buying up stuff and selling/recycling it until about 50 years ago. And re-using vehicle parts from a car-breaker used to be much more common than it is now. While many new re-use/ recycle initiatives are to be welcomed, there should be no pretending that this never happened before. The little chunk I deleted from the article was making that claim.
Gravuritas (talk) 08:24, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
Pardon me that I misunderstood you! I got something via googling and I thought they might be useful if they are related to the topic, but I am not confident enough to do the editing so I left a note here. Thanks for the clarification! :D -- Petorial (talk) 11:21, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Merge with Ecology movement[edit]

I performed the merge. Very little was salvageable material—either unsourced or unsourced and biased. I'd encourage those who are interested to look back at the version of the ecology movement page and rework and find sources for unsourced material. Karmos (talk) 06:14, 20 July 2014 (UTC)

Time line Comment[edit]

"The Society attracted growing support from the suburban middle-classes and influenced the passage of the Sea Birds Preservation Act in 1869". That's interesting because the Society was formed (as The Plumage League) only 20 years latter (February 1889). אביהו (talk) 10:03, 11 October 2016 (UTC)
