During every election, there are always people that are displeased with the way the previous term was ran, no matter which party a person belongs too. The same goes with Environmentalists. There will always be a person who wants more from the government and thinks enough hasn’t been done. The damage that has been done to the environment has taken place over many years and can’t be simply fixed in one or two terms of a President. Over time, with policy’s implemented by the government and more people becoming aware of what sustainability is, I feel we will see some change in the environment in future generations to come.
I think if the radical approach occurred and the face of the government was changed, there would possibly be a lot of rebellions going on by people who don’t agree with it. When something is completely changed, many people are surprised by it and don’t know how to react. If we prepare people for the change, they won’t be surprised by it and will accept the changes that are going to be implemented and integrated in the current government. Reforming the current system by moving the environmental issues towards the top is key. People are so set in their ways that you can’t wipe what has been done completely in the past, however you can modify it. The state of the economy that America is currently is does make it hard for environmental issues to take place, but I feel with time the two issues will become intertwined and it will become more of a pressing issue.
