If America's environmental laws and regulations are left unchanged, they will ultimately contribute to the destruction of the human and natural environments. Dunn and Kinney argue that the environmental movement as it now operates is counterproductive; solutions can be found only through rational, non-political efforts based on reality, not ideological propaganda. The authors show what the facts are and how they have been distorted to benefit what are often misguided, self-serving political agendas. For anyone uncertain of the facts and baffled by conflicting viewpoints, Conservative Environmentalism will come as fresh air, bringing hope and encouragement that solutions are possible. The greatest environmental gains in human history have occurred in democratic First World nations over the past century-nations that have not only expanded their natural resources but also improved the human condition. The environmental Left has largely ignored these gains, stressing imperfections and promoting fear through unfounded, unproven theories or deceptions. specious evidence.

To solve the problems they see, the Left uses regulations that severely impede technology and efficient productivity-the very things that improve environmental conditions. Rather than supporting the regulation of industrial productivity, Dunn and Kinney argue for its expansion. The authors compare downside and upside effects of environmental actions in both First World and Third World countries and examine the negative effects that U.S. EPA and U.S. AID edits and proscriptions have on development and the environment.
