About this book

Environmental patriotism, the belief that the national environment defines a country's greatness, is a significant strand in twentieth century American environmentalism. Communicating Environmental Patriotism is the first to explore the history of environmental patriotism in America through the intriguing stories of environmental patriots and the rhetoric of their speeches and propaganda, The See America First movement began in 1906 with the aim of protecting and promoting the landscapes of the American West. In 1908, Gifford Pinchot and President Theodore Roosevelt hosted the White House Conservation Conference to promote the wise use of natural resources for generations of Americans. In 1912, Pittsburgh's smoke investigation condemned the effects of coal smoke on the city's environment. In World War II, a massive propaganda effort mobilized millions of Americans to plant victory gardens to save resources for the war abroad.

While these may not seem like crucial moments for the American environmental movement, this new history of American environmentalism shows that they are linked by patriotism. Communicating Environmental Patriotism offers a provoking critique of environmentalists' communication strategies and suggests patriotism as a persuasive hook for new ways to make environmental issues a national priority. This original research should be of interest to scholars of environmental communication, environmental history, American history and environmental philosophy.
