We should care about what happens to the environmental. If we decided not to, we could lose animals and any type of food source in our communities.
00:07
The actions that harm the environmental and humans. This is alienating specific groups throughout the community.
00:11
This is important because there is a struggle to maintain the environment. This also goes for the ocean. Chemicals hurt fish, and we use water for eating and drinking.
00:12
There has been research about this injustice since the 1900s. Environmental injustice comes from the actions that tend to harm the environment. People believe that it was larger factories harming the environment, but it is the communities that they harm in the process.
00:17
Some of this environmental justice was from people getting ill, and the environment be harmed in several ways.
00:22
Almost 500 people were arrested because they protesting for their rights and saving the environment.
00:26
When people started noticing the how bad this was going, they began to protest. In 1980, there was a environmental justice movement. They wanted to use the same tatcis as the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s.
00:28
There were two people that helped forward the issues from what they have built or wrote in the late and early 18 and 1900s.

The creator or foundation of environmentalism. HIs work helped people see the compare and contrast of the environment and social responsibility. He believed that living a good life is only possible of we keep the wild intact.
00:51
There has not been a end date announced about the movement. Overtime the movement has growth in numbers. A large amount of diverse groups of people that protest to keep nature safe.
00:56
This later brought more communities to this movement. There actions made other feel that they should care like everyone else.
01:05
The issues that people dealt with is the resentment. People trying to stop this movement is something that is surprising. Even though the movement would create barricades throughout communities, people should know what is going on with their environment.
01:13
There have been groups that are Anti-environmentalism. They make people believe that the environment brings a negative impact to society.

Success to this justice would be no pollution, deforestation, reduction of global warning, and more. Animals would be able to survive in there environments, and we wouldn't be ill from half of these issues around the world.
01:25
To achieve this, we would need everyone's support. This is something that one person can't do by themselves. We would have to come together as a community, and change our daily activities to save the environment and mankind. This has been going on since the 1900s, and it still going on in some areas around the world. Even if you may not want to protest, you could at least save it by recycling, volunteer for cleanups, conserve water, or even educate people on ways to help the environment.

There are statistics saying that recycling reduce the natural resources by 94%. This also helps prevent greenhouse gases and water pollution.
01:47
We are already making this happen. We have done activites in communities, and saved so many animals by reducing our non-envirnmental activites.
01:53
There is still more to do when it comes to the environment. Most likely, this is possible and maybe achievable. Time will only tell what progress we have made as a hole. After all America was not built in a day.
