Abstract :

An overview is presented on environmental activism and its impact on humanity's future, comparing the political strategies of Lynton Caldwell, who fostered the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, and Winston Churchill's strategies during World War II. Both men framed their plans based on the premise that conditions would constantly change, and were therefore able to respond to these changes more readily than if they had employed a static policy framework.
