Abstract: "The environmental wave may have crested, but it is a strong and continuing one. During the 1970s, environmental issues exploded in perceived importance. An increasingly wealthy nation developed greater appreciation for natural amenities and a rising fear of technological threats to the environment. Throughout the 1970s, public opinion polls conducted by Harris, Gallup, CBS, and the Survey Research Center consistently demonstrated strong support for environmental protection and conservation. Despite the continuing tax revolt in 1980, 64 percent of California's voters supported a bond issue for water pollution control and 52 percent supported bonds for park acquisition. The expected backlash of the environmental movement was not strong, if it even existed."
