The Environmental Politics of Sacrifice

Michael Maniates

The MIT Press

There are several positive ways in which people can fight against global warming and thwart environmental threats to human beings. US environmental organizations, like the Center for a New American Dream and the Pittsburgh Zoo, are promoting several strategies that focus on the consumer-centric politics of environmental action. This is a kind of politics that appears to grow as major public concern about environmental ills and energy vulnerability increases. The chapter further focuses on the evolution of Take Back Your Time (TBYT) and its new initiative Right2Vacation.org in the context of sacrifice and environmental sustainability.
