John Warnock correctly pointed out that the green political movement is usually left of centrist and social-democratic parties, but he is probably incorrect in his assertion that "the green movement is primarily a First World phenomenon." There are active environmental NGOs and green political movements in many developing countries but, like labour unions, women's groups, and other progressive political and civil society organizations, they are often suppressed and persecuted by international business interests and authoritarian governments.
