A Nicer Shade of Green

We Can Have Green Conservatism -- And We Should
Human Events, Vol. 2. No. 17, April 23,2007 - Newt Gingrich wrote,

[...] For the last 36 years, I have watched the pro-regulation, pro-litigation, pro-taxation liberals label themselves as the only Americans who care about the environment.

The leftwing machine would have you believe that to care about clean air and water, biodiversity, and the future of the Earth you have to both buy in to their catastrophic scenarios and sign on to their command-and-control bureaucratic liberal agenda, including dramatic increases in government power and draconian policies that will devastate our economy, as the only solution to environmental challenges.

The time has come to define a fundamentally different approach to a healthy environment and a healthy economy. The time has come for the development of Green Conservatism as an alternative to big bureaucracy and big litigation liberal environmentalism.


Read the entire article at Human Events where Mr. Gingrich adeptly covers these topics:
  • Conserving Our Environment, Not Expanding Our Government
  • Liberal Environmentalism: Radical, Hysterical and Inaccurate
  • Green Conservatism: Pro-Freedom, Pro-Market, Pro-Environment
  • Key to Green Conservatism: Energy Independence From Dangerous Dictatorships
  • Sounds Good, but How Do We Get There?
  • Our Entrepreneurs and Markets vs. Their Lawyers, Bureaucrats and Regulations
