I firmly believe most Americans are environmentalists on some level. We all want clean air and clean water. We treasure our countries national parks and natural beauty. Most Americans want the government to take a common sense approach to protecting the environment. Unfortunately, our government is under the control of wacko environmentalists who have thrown common sense to the wind. EPA regulation of a naturally occurring gas like CO2 at a potential cost of trillions of dollars is a prime example. In another example of environmentalism gone wild, an entire California farming valley was decimated when Federal water managers cut off their water to protect a finger long fish (pictured left). As you read this article, the economy of Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina is being decimated by beach closures in order to protect a bird. Here is the shocking video.
