Were people going green in the 80’s?

    Yes! The environmental movement started way before the 80s, probably during the 50s. For example, Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” about the environmental consequences of using DDT was published in 1962.

    In response to Henry,

    According to this website (http://www.environmentalhistory.org/), where an American scholar had timelined environmentalism as a private project, Rachel Carson’s book “Silent Spring” being the start of the environmental movement is a myth. In fact he goes on to list environmental impacts throughout our century stating, “This shows that history is not a static collection of well known facts any more than science is an unchanging description of the physical world.”

    Definitely, thought it wasn’t as mianstream. Jimmy Carter placed solar panels on the White House before they were taken down in 1986 during the Reagan presidency. I think the gas/oil crisis during the 70s woke a few people up.
