Failure to protect the environment will most likely lead to *very* negative repercussions.

Of course the environment is something to preserve but legislation does more harm than to preserve it. Global warming is something that has happened in history at intervals; what's also funny is that about 30 years ago, there was a"global cooling" controversy.

I think that private companies and businesses should work to develop technology that makes the planet greener, but don't let the federal government own so much land.

I'm strongly opposed to modern environmentalism, as exists mainly in the political left. Aside from bad policy, it is dominated by neo-luddites and anti-scientists - their lunacy goes far behind anything on the political right. It is also harming people and communities that rely on the fossil fuel industry for employment. I do, however, strongly support personal and corporate accountability. In particular, I think corporations that have polluted public land (like the BP oil spill, tanker spills, and illegal dumping) should be 100% accountable responsible for cleaning up as well as compensating the victims. I also like the idea of replacing subsidies for green companies with government 'prizes' for development of real, efficient clean technology.

Those who destroy the value of other people's property through pollution ought to be held accountable in the most severe ways possible, including universally uncapped damages and jail time for top executives if there is proof that the damage sustained was not accidental. But giving the government the ability to act in a preventative manner while hamstringing retribution, as we currently do, is a recipe for disasters both fiscal and environmental.

I don't really see any negatives of this that are realistic. We need to protect our environment, it provides us with oxygen and presents material benefits for us. We can make things out of trees and plants. If we want to do this in the long term then environmental is the most sustainable and reasonable option available at the moment.

For the most part, I don't want to ban the logging or mining industry or anything crazy like that. But protecting endangered and threatened species and keeping rivers clean sounds like a good idea to me.

Humanity is doing unimaginable damage to the environment and we should devote funds to protect it and not allow polluting corporations to destroy the planet for future generations just so that they can make a quick profit.

Nuclear energy needs to be pursued. It's the most sustainable and greeniest of all the proposed alternative energy sources. If anti-vaxxer's are the idiots of the medicine world, the anti-nuclear folks are the idiots of the environment world.
