18 days after the first part, I have finally gotten down to writing the second part of Mr. Loosli’s talk on the US environmental movement. Forgive the tardiness, s’il vous plaĆ®t.

The first part of the talk, as I described in the previous post, was about the economic conditions that led to the overexploitation of resources. The second part goes into some details on how the environmental movement in the USA has evolved to address the issues described.

– REALLY Long details after the jump!!!>


Thank You Mr. Goetzl

Although the chances of it making onto the main headlines of the nation’s newspapers is dim, Greenpulse is glad for the extra publicity, however minor, that the United States Embassy has generated by placing news of Greenpulse on its site.

The article explains Alberto Goetzl throughout five states in Malaysia and how he specifically engages Greenpulse during his stop at Universiti Malaysia Sabah.

We really appreciate the continued support of the US Embassy in our efforts to advance the environmental movement in this country.

That said, I really need to get the second part of Phill Loosli’s talk done.

The United States Environmental Movement

The United States Environmental Movement

On the 2nd of October, 2009, the Pesta Tanglung event was on everyone’s mind. Everyone except for Greenpulse members who were treated to a talk on environmental economics and the environmental movement in the United States of America by Mr. Phill Loosli, the US embassy’s Environment, Science, Technology and Health officer.

The talk focused on the economic perspective of the environmental problem, which is to show that without government intervention, it is more logical from an economic perspective to pollute and destroy the environment.
