So what were politicians saying about the environment 21 years ago? Pretty much the same things they say today. The planet was “under siege.” An environmental “Holocaust” was underway.
UPDATE — Ed Driscoll adds:
Curiously, it began “dying” right at the very moment when ’60s liberals concluded that the eschaton known as the Great Society couldn’t be immanentized, and it’s been dying ever since.
It will continue to do so until we decide to leave the late ’60s and ’70s behind.
