How to Make Conservatives Love the Environment
Ron Bailey, Reason
According to the polls conservatives have become less concerned about environmental issues than liberals. In 1992, reports the Pew Foundation, 93 percent of Democrats and 86 percent of Republicans agreed that “there needs to be stricter laws and regulations to protect the environment.” In 2012, however, Democratic support for more environmental regulation hadn’t dropped while Republican support had fallen to just 47 percent.
