“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?” — Pres. Ronald Reagan

Republican presidents from Teddy Roosevelt, Richard Nixon, to George W. Bush left fine environmental legacies to celebrate: Roosevelt for the Forest Service, National Park Service, and Antiquities Act; Nixon the Clean Air, Water, and Endangered Species Acts; and Bush for marine protected areas in the Pacific Ocean.

What are the chances for similar initiatives today? A group calling themselves Conservatives for Responsible Stewardship (CRS) think it is possible. Here's hope so. WHB
