The Rebirth Of Environmentalism

Environmental issues are uniting conservatives and liberals even while the nation becomes more polarized.

"At the ballot box, on issues such as land preservation, water quality, renewable energy and public transit, American voters crossed party lines to approve about 75 percent of environment-related ballot measures last November, even as they chose George Bush over John Kerry for president.

Most Americans - 61 percent - say they are active in the environmental movement or sympathetic toward it, according to a 2004 Gallup poll. That number is down from 71 percent four years earlier. Thirty percent said they were 'neutral' toward environmentalism in 2004, up from 23 percent in 2000."
