I’ve been involved in a discussion over at Cranach about the battle for the soul of the conservative movement: Conservative civil war. I threw in a few quotes from noted conservatives to point out that there is nothing conservative about allowing pollution and degradation of the Earth.
“While I am a great believer in the free enterprise system and all that it entails, I am an even stronger believer in the right of our people to live in a clean, pollution-free environment.” — Barry Goldwater
“Nothing is more conservative than conservation.” — Russell Kirk
“Many laws protecting environmental quality have promoted liberty by securing property against the destructive trespass of pollution” — Ronald Reagan
“Conservation is a great moral issue, for it involves the patriotic duty of insuring the safety and continuance of the nation.” — Theodore Roosevelt
Grace and peace
One thought on “Good conservative quotes on the environment”
my relgious beliefs are old fashioned and are founded by my reverence for nature which God created. i believe that religious people should be good stewards of the earth. that is how you show respect to God.
