Environmental movements are an important part of the political and social

spectrum today. The main principles developed by these movements are applied in

politics, education, science nowadays. All we know about these principles. All we have

encountered the conception that we need to keep nature clean, to protect the environment,

etc. There is Paris agreement that aims at reducing greenhouse gases in the near future.

There are other agreements demanding the elimination of fossil fuels. All the time we are

listening about global warming, climate change, human impact on climate. We are

informed that we will face natural disasters brought about by global warming; that all

floods, storms, hurricanes in the near future will be caused by global warming. There is

even a fashionable movement that we could refer to as "green." Everything "green" is

good, nice, to be preferred. There are "green airlines," "green vehicles," "green

factories," and so forth. This is what we hear and read, but is it true?

This book aims at analyzing environmental ("green") movements in a

philosophical aspect. The work distinguishes between the political, scientific, and

philosophical dimensions of these movements. It demonstrates that here we can find a

certain agenda elaborated and supported by liberal circles. Despite that green

movements do not have any connection to liberalism, they are backed by liberals today.

Here we will attempt to answer the question of what is the relationship between

environmental movements, liberalism, and socialism.
