The Green Movement, also called Environmentalism, may seem like a recent phenomena, but in fact dates back centuries. Modern environmentalism came with the establishment of National Parks in many countries around the world. Rachel Carsen and her book Silent Spring are often credited with the first modern wake-up call regarding pollution and the environment. From there, Environmentalism has slowly expanded to include all areas of business and industry, although politically, it remains rather weak and much less effective than the situation warrants.
