Newt’s not the only Red turning Green. Suddenly, it’s the latest righty-rage. From Terra Rossa:
I couldn’t agree more with Newt’s position here. I’m a conservative, but I’m also a passionate environmentalist. And it dismays me to see that, somewhere along the way, conservatives wrote themselves out of the environmental debate. I don’t question the motives of my liberal environmentalist friends, but I do question their methods. And I genuinely believe conservatives have something to say on this issue. As a reader recently wrote on this site, conservation is inherently conservative.
It’s time that conservatives and Republicans got involved in the environmental debate. Now more than ever, we need a seat at the table on this issue. It’s good to see that Speaker Gingrich agrees.
Besides, there’s tons of green dough to be made off of all-things-eco. Call your broker now. Full post here.
