(p.63) 3 Is Liberalism Environment‐Friendly?
The Environment Between Theory and Practice

Avner de‐Shalit

Oxford University Press

What kind of theory should and can we use to persuade others of the importance of environment‐friendly policies? More precisely, in what sense is liberalism environment friendly and in what sense is it not? de‐Shalit suggests that liberalism has been exceptionally effective in eliminating environmental literacy and raising environmental awareness. Nevertheless, it is inadequate when it comes to fostering environmental political consciousness.
