    One environmentalist movement which started the Sierre Club, started in 1900.  This fought for the environmental protection for many of the natural places in the United States.  Another main environmental movement started in the end of the 1960’s with the book Silent Sprint by Rachel Carlson.  This book brought out the effects of DDT on the environment.  This helped spur the publics image on pollution.  A third movement started in 1987 with the publishing of “Our Common Future” which spurred a common effort to protect biodiversity.
