Rick Maltese, environmentalist and musician: How can we maintain a modern life style in regions that have it, help the rest of the world benefit from a sound economy and modern life style, benefit from use of mineral and natural resources, clean up pollution, promote wildlife habitat and biodiversity? Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy- USA is working for these goals with our priorities. . ECOMODERNISTS, website: http://www.ecomodernism.org/ is working with their priorities. This is a welcome, broad, practical new approach for mankind, nature and the environment. Let's work together for our home, this precious planet, Earth.
Robert Bryce writes on energy, politics and other topics - There is a clash between the pro-nuclear New Guard Greens, many of whom call themselves “ecomodernists,” and the anti-nuclear Old Guard Greens, led by groups like the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. These "green" "environmentalists" are out to "save the world" some times without regard for humanity. EFN-International and EFN-USA define an environmentalist as ordinary people who are respectful of the environment.
To say that the Earth is a human planet becomes truer every day. Humans are made from the Earth, and the Earth is remade by human hands. Many earth scientists express this by stating that the Earth has entered a new geological epoch: the Anthropocene, the Age of Humans.
As scholars, scientists, campaigners, and citizens, we write with the conviction that knowledge and technology, applied with wisdom, might allow for a good, or even great, Anthropocene. A good Anthropocene demands that humans use their growing social, economic, and technological powers to make life better for people, stabilize the climate, and protect the natural world.
