Media Advisory: Proponents of “Smart” Environmentalism Available for Earth Day

Washington, DC, April 17, 2001— As people around the world prepare to celebrate the 31st Earth Day, this Sunday, April 22nd, concerned individuals are realizing the meaning of environmentalism is changing. Increasingly, private stewardship and market-based strategies are replacing the bureaucratic management style of the past 30 years – the first wave of green politics. This “Smart Environmentalism” is being seen everywhere from the recently privatized fisheries of New Zealand to the balanced land-use priorities of the current Bush administration. CEI has several experts in environmental policy who focus on the emerging trends that make up this Smart Environmental approach. They are all available for interviews and appearances as the people of the world celebrate the evolving concept of environmental stewardship.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” />
