While determining what the outcome of our environment is going to be, we need to examine the history, where we are now, and where these solutions in the environment will take us. Our children lives are at stack. History The environmental issue is a very old issue that has been a problem for many years now. To be honest things can become a bit overwhelming for some to understand when we try to explain the effects human beings have on the environment.

Some believed the causes were natural; however, studies concluded that the steady increase in population is a co-conspirator. In the 1960s when noticeable natural disasters were occurring, the environmental movement became forefront. The oil spills in California and Massachusetts raised serious issues warranting an environmental conference to prompt international awareness of environmental concerns.

News anchor; Harry Reasoner described it as a test that “used human beings as laboratory animals in a long and inefficient study of how long it takes syphilis to kill someone.” Even as the Public Health Service was exposed, they remained impenitent and said that the black men volunteered themselves to be used as an experiment. The Government later ended the experiment. The Public Health Service still justified its actions by saying that the experiment was for the “greater good of science”.

Much of the "missing" data has been "found." Still Mr. Gore pushes on, advocating the testing of products that have been on the market for years. If he has his way, rat poison will be tested on rats -- care to hazard a guess about the results?
Do organisations implement corporate environmentalism into their core management practises solely to attain profit maximisation? Since the introduction of large scaled industrial organisations post the Industrial Revolution the key focus of firms has been on maximising profit through implementing management frameworks which aim to correct the internal environment of the workplace. The perception organisations have about the term ‘environment’ has gradually shifted towards an ‘ecocentric’ view whereby organizations acknowledge the ecological impact caused by their actions. As of recent with the introduction of pro-environmental media such as Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring (1962) and Al-Gore’s infamous documentary An Inconvenient Truth (2006) based on biological degradation and global warming, organisations are trending towards a ‘sustainability’ paradigm (Gladwin et al. 1995).
