conservative conservationalists party

It has a nice ring doesn't it?

For me, one of the largest detractors of the GOP / conservative / republican party is it doesn't give enough "air time" or commitment to the environment. It should. It is very in line with the over-arching ethos of conservatives.

But don't take my word for it. Rather read a bit from my new hero, Roger Scruton.

There is no political cause more amenable to the conservative vision than that of the environment. For it touches on the three foundational ideas of our movement: trans-generational loyalty, the priority of the local and the search for home. Conservatives resonate to Burke's view of society, as a partnership between the living, the unborn and the dead; they believe in civil association between neighbours rather than intervention by the state; and they accept that the most important thing the living can do is to settle down, to make a home for themselves, and to pass that home to their children.
