Conservative Revisionist History: Ronald Reagan was an Environmentalist
April 07, 2010 -- Was Ronald Reagan an Environmentalist? | Field & Stream
Was Ronald Reagan an Environmentalist?
Yes, at least according to the group Republicans for Environmental Protection . The organization has launched a new campaign entitled "What Would Reagan Do About Climate Change?" which seeks to link Reagan's legacy of conservatism with an ethos of environmental stewardship and positive action on climate change. And while those on the left might be going apoplectic right now from the idea that the guy who hired James Watt as Interior secretary could even remotely be considered an environmentalist, the group insists Reagan would be tackling climate change head-on.
The comment section is the best read...
"There is a tremendous difference between what Ronald Reagan did and what passes for environmentalism these days. Unfortunately, the extremists provide the current definition...It's sad that politics pits people against each other that initially have very similar goals."
