When did environmentalism start?

    Environmentalism has taken many incarnations and has a very different meaning in the modern climate than ever before. I am enclosing a timeline of environmental movements, but the earliest forms of recognisably modern environmentalism seem to connect with various industrial revolutions, by and large those of Great Britain and the United States.

    The most recent wave of environmentalism came from the 1960s. In the 20th century, the book “Silent Spring”, published in 1962, caught the eye of the public about environmental concerns.  The book is mainly about DDT (a toxic pesticide) and its harmful effect on the environment and human beings. Many people believe the book started modern environmentalism.

    I argue that “environmentalism” started with John Muir at the turn of the 20th century.  John Muir is notably one of the trailblazers of modern society paying attention to the preservation of open space.  Drawing attention to simply open space cues in the notion to preserve and respect the natural resources humanity depends so intensely upon.
