Forty-one percent (41%) of those polled by Gallup say they consider themselves an "environmentalist." That's far fewer than in decades past.
Nearly twice as many people (78%) said they are an environmentalist in 1991, the historical high point for this question.
The decline in environmentalist identification has been greater among Republicans than Independents or Democrats.
But Americans in all three political groups show sharp drops since the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Gallup poll story: Majority of Americans do not identify as "environmentalist"
Wendy-Jo Savage says
CONSERVATIONIST - steward the planet for next generation - solution based
ENVIROMENTALUST - humans are a plague on the planet - guilt based
James DuRell Smith says
The decline is because people are starting to see that much of what the progressives are selling is a pack of lies. That after spending billions of dollars that the impact will not even be measurable by the end of the decade. Most people find this another subject they would rather not discuss because if you don't jump on board with the crazy view you will be attacked and canceled. "Follow the science" they say and then they disregard anything that doesn't meet their agenda. It's not that we shouldn't continue to improve wherever we can but some of it is just nonsense. Solar and Wind energy are great suplimentry power sources but they cannot and will not meet this countries power demands under peak conditions. What happens when you start using more electric vehicles and don't have the electrical supply to charge them ? Contact your representatives and let them know you support moderate measures but they need to stand up to the media and far left progressives. They get paid to make tough decisions that support us all not just 10% of the population.
Yes, I admit I am an "environmentalist" I clean up my own vomit after hearing the climate huckster$, GloBULList$ and Greta whats-her-name lecturing me on such things. MORE IMPORTANT, Their families WILL BE HARMED by crushing Global DEBT$ in the here and NOW eons before anyone ever is "inconvenienced" by so called GloBULL Goring change on a computer model 500-1200 years from now.
Eugene Murray says
The environmental movement has lost its focus looking to block or completely halt projects no matter the cost to the country. Just look at the stoppage of nuclear plant construction and the Keystone pipeline as examples
