“TO waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”

These words were spoken by one of the nation’s most passionate conservationists: Republican President Teddy Roosevelt. I admire him for his pragmatism and individualism — foundational traits of the Republican Party. We must summon these qualities and apply them immediately and stoutly to the issue of climate change.

This is the powerful opening to a piece penned in the New York Times by Gov. Jon Huntsman, Jr. Read the entire call to action here.

Thank you, Gov.Huntsman, for your continued, strong leadership.

  1. This is leadership – not being afraid to stand for your principles in opposition to a majority in your party.
