From the Paper:

"Environmental concern has become one of the most profound and enduring social themes the world over in the last 25 years. It has mobilized scientific innovation and collaboration to a truly remarkable extent. It has spawned a myriad of international treaties through which nations with greatly differing traditions and outlooks are pursuing common goals. It has stimulated a technological drive toward more efficient use of materials and energy that has become a growth industry in its own right. It has created regulatory agencies and approaches that are proving tough and effective. And it has spurred the formation of a host of interest groups comprising an enormous range of activities, people, and achievements. By any measure, environmentalism is a remarkable phenomenon."
