Shikha Dalmia has an excellent essay from The Wall Street Journal on hypocricy within the environmental movement and the historical distinction between conservationists and preservationists. Dalmia works with our friends over at Reason.
Key lines: "If their opposition to the Klamath hydroelectric dams in the Pacific Northwest is any indication, the greens, it appears, are just as unwilling to sacrifice their pet causes as a Texas rancher is to sacrifice his pickup truck. If anything, the radicalization of the environmental movement is the bigger obstacle to addressing global warming than the allegedly gluttonous American way of life."
