The conservative environmentalist : common sense solutions for a sustainable future / Benji Backer.

Backer, Benjamin, (author.).


"A passionate, provocative vision for solving our climate crisis from a young, forward-thinking conservative climate activist. Activists, politicians, and pseudo-experts have led us to believe that there are only two viable approaches to climate change: panicked doomerism or flat-out denial. Conservative climate activist Benji Backer argues that both are failing. In The Conservative Environmentalist, he proposes a new strategy for fixing the climate--while serving the American people instead of working against them. Backer makes the compelling case that conservative values are the key to climate solutions that actually work. In this book, you'll visit the country's most diverse ecosystems and consequential manufacturing hubs--from Utah coal mines and Texas oil fields to Louisiana's wetlands and Rhode Island's off-shore wind farms--witnessing the power of individual entrepreneurship and local problem-solving. You'll learn about the inspiring, under-the-radar efforts to improve Earth's ecosystems that big government Green New Dealers don't want you to know about, like partnerships between resource-rich oil and gas companies and environmental nonprofits to preserve thousands of acres of wetlands. Drawing on the most credible science, a deep understanding of local community needs, and his experience rallying politicians on the Left and Right to take action, Backer offers hope for everyone who cares about the planet and the future of America. Fascinating, clear-headed, and full of surprises, this book is the fresh approach we need to create a sustainable future for America and the world"-- Provided by publisher.
