Environmentalism was rapidly institutionalized in the early seventies. With a body of environmental laws, specific institutions and powerful lobbies in Washington, mainstream environmentalism was designed to handle environmental problems efficiently. This approach has been criticized by radical environmentalists who question the dominant anthropocentric social paradigm for the sake of other species. It has given rise to a form of biocentric fundamentalism, precluding any policy based on compromise, jeopardizing American democratic tradition.
