“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

Republican presidents from Theodore Roosevelt, to Richard Nixon, through George W. Bush left environmental legacies that can be celebrated: Roosevelt for the Forest Service, the National Park Service, and Antiquities Act; Nixon for the Clean Air, Water, and Endangered Species Acts; and Bush for a major marine protected area in the Pacific Ocean.

What are the chances for such conservation initiatives today? A group called  Conservatives for Responsible Stewardship  believe it can still occur. Let's hope so.
