ABSTRACT
The article discusses a greater sense of resignation on the part of the U.S. public with respect to environmental disasters. While a 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, California helped spur the creation of Earth Day, efforts to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to petroleum drilling nearly succeeded just 12 years after the tanker "Exxon Valdez" spilled its contents off the coast of Alaska.
