Despite the trends of decades past, environmental issues remained a concern for the majority of the public even after the recession of 2008. In the past it was during economic downturns where both policy makers and the public seemingly dropped environmental concerns in favor of more pressing issues (i.e. “fixing” the economy). This is indicative of a change in perceptions of the environment, but also of the now entrenched social infrastructure dealing with the environment. I am hopeful this is also and indicator of future change.
