As global environmental changes become increasingly evident and efforts to respond to these changes fall short of expectations, questions about the circumstances that generate environmental reforms become more pressing. Defensive Environmentalists and Global Reform answers these questions through a historical analysis of two processes that have contributed to environmental reforms, one in which people become defensive environmentalists concerned about environmental problems close to home and another in which people become altruistic environmentalists intent on alleviating global problems after experiencing catastrophic events such as hurricanes, droughts, and fires. These focusing events make reform more urgent and convince people to become altruistic environmentalists. Bolstered by defensive environmentalists, the altruists gain strength in environmental politics, and reforms occur.

Book Description:

This book analyzes historic occurrences of environmental reform, explaining that reforms occur when two types of environmentalists join forces: defensive environmentalists concerned with contaminants in their immediate surroundings and altruistic environmentalists who, after events such as hurricanes or droughts, commit to alleviating global problems.
