537: Nate Hochman, part 1: Toward a Conservative Environmentalism


I met Nate on Citizens Climate Lobby panel on conservatives and climate, then read his National Review piece, Toward a Conservative Environmentalism, which we talk about in this conversation. I've looked forward to a conversation like this for a long time: a thoughtful approach to the environment that isn't politicized. Nate doesn't hide his values and approach, but understands and respects alternative views. He shares views on questions like How does an approach to conserving the environment look when based on limited government, free market capitalism, and honoring small communities and family? How have political conservatives responded to his views? How do those responses vary in time and by age? What is the future of conservatives on the environment? What are conservatives doing and how is their approach developing and evolving? Most of all: Is there common ground among Americans with different political views on sustainability? If so, how can we find and build it?
