Quote of the Day: Here's How the GOP Shows Its Enviro Cred

| Tue Apr. 22, 2014 9:58 AM EDT

Jonah Goldberg says it's unfair that environmental groups are almost uniformly anti-Republican:

Contrary to what you may have heard, GOP politicians still care about the environment, but they take their cues from public opinion, not from the green lobby. This often means that when the green lobby denounces Republicans (or centrist Democrats) for supporting drilling or fracking, the greens are at odds with the majority of Americans.

So there you go. Conservatives care deeply about the environment, and they demonstrate this commitment by ignoring "global warming hysteria" and instead pandering to public opinion polls at every turn. I'm glad we got that straightened out.
