Bond: The Greenies & Me

This is the first of a multi-part series by D.P. Bond/Wallace Street Journal, entitled, “The Greenies & Me”:

To be a Conservationist is a great thing. It means you respect the earth that nurtures you with the grain and flesh from its fields, the timber from its forests to the silver and lead hidden in its rocks. Think Theodore Roosevelt. Think Gifford Pinchot. Think Ed Pulaski. Conservationists are at their core tolerantly libertarian. As such they allowed a rotten sprig to sprout from their midst and become a secular religion, and its name is Environmentalism. The Environmentalist movement is, like most religions, a fraud and a sham and a cruel effort to, using fear, confuse, tax and enslave. It has nothing to do with being a Conservationist. More here.

Question: In terms of the environment, how would you describe yourself?
