About this video

Jane Shaw focuses on what the civil route to environmental protection can be. She states her firm belief in property rights and explains how non-governmental organizations are more involved in political education than in environmental protection. She mentions that no decision is permanent under government control and that the common assumption that the government alone must protect the environment is wrong. Shaw also comments on grassroots, which are organizations that focus on the environment, created due to the frustration of previous environmental failures. Many of them are located in big cities and tend to create activities in order for various environmental-unfriendly laws to be modified. In order to ensure that her point is understandable, she talks about the National Audubon Society, an environmental group that has been working for about 100 years and that among its objectives there is the change of laws and the opposition to oil-drilling in refuges.
