What has been the most influential generation in shaping environmental policy?

    Its hard to say specifically, but in my mind, the Rachel Carson era was very influential (this could include baby boomers or the young Generation Xers). Although our Generation, Y (born 1960s-ish through the 1990s), is shaping the current environmental framework, the significant policies of the late 1960s to 1970s were very important to alleviating environmental damage. As many of us know, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, the Endangered Species Act, as well as the EPA, all came about in the late 1960s-1970s, and these regulations set the stage for future environmental awareness. With that said, it is hard to ignore their significance, and without them I don’t think we would be where we are today.
