02/07/12 2 Questions for Consideration:  1. What really caused the sudden upsurge in concern for preserving America’s  environment at the beginning of the twentieth century? To what extent was this  concern motivated by nostalgia for an older America, and to what extent by a  desire to preserve nature and natural resources for future generations? 2. What were the underlying issues in the debate between “rational use”  environmentalists and the more thoroughgoing “preservationists”? How did the  rise of modern ecological science tilt that debate? 3.  Why did the progressives believe that strong government action was the only  way to tackle the social and economic problems of industrialization? How did  this approach differ from traditional American emphasis on voluntary solutions to  social problems? 4.
