“You’re worried about what man has done and is doing to this magical planet that God gave us, and I share your concern. What is a conservative after all, but one who conserves?” — President Ronald Reagan
From the 150 national forests, five national parks and 18 national monuments created during the administration of Theodore Roosevelt to the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 and the signing of the Endangered Species Act in 1973 by Richard Nixon to the Montreal Protocol ratified by the Senate 83-0 and signed by Ronald Reagan in 1987, which propelled governments all over the planet to take action to arrest the destruction of the protective ozone layer, to the 1990 Clean Air Act signed by George H. W. Bush, Republicans have led the way toward a cleaner environment and healthier planet. The majority of economists agrees that the fastest way to reduce carbon in the environment is to put a price on carbon. All of us should investigate carbon pricing and ask our representatives and senators to embrace this fiscally-sound solution.
