Bush & The Environment


In answer to the untenured college professor’s quesiton, the Bush record on the environment is mixed. On the one hand, the administration has not engaged in all the environmental horrors that its green critics have charged. I’ve discussed and debunked some of these charges, particularly those made by RFK Jr., on NRO here, here, and here. On the other hand, the Administration has not done much to advance a principled conservative environmental policy. As a result, free market groups like PERC only give the administration a C+ on environmental policy. In sum, while there are plenty of things to criticize about the administration’s environmental record, the charge that Bush has been “anti-environment” is simply false.
