What irony that the term 'conservative' has now come to mean someone who conserves nothing. How the "conservative" "conservation" movement of the 20th century ended up in the hands of men who consider pollution good and conservation evil. The equation, no matter what 'conservatives' may tell you is not pollution vs freedom from government. The equation is pollution is harmful to the people, and thus the government should protect them. If some rich terrorists wants to pay for the right to blow up bathers at a beach, everyone would scream "Wrong"! But when some rich industrialist wants to give them cancer and illness, everyone seems to think the politician has a right to take the bribe.
