Is the American environmental movement all but dead as a meaningful force for change? You have to wonder, after reading this Washington Post story from earlier in the week. Or, as the article suggests, are there larger forces arrayed against Greens, such as the deep economic funk much of America is still trying to shake off? Five years ago, status quo environmentalism was given a similar obituary, which got a lot of hoopla. Big Greens are like zombies, though. Just ask the donors, who can't fight them off. But now, with Big Green's inability to feed and propogate off the nation's biggest environmental disaster, you have to wonder if their days are numbered.
