Private Property Rights, Not Ideologies, Are the Crux
By Jane S. Shaw
This article appeared in the Summer 2002 issue of The Independent Review


Colarelli is right to say that liberals have become conservatives in their desire to keep nature from changing. His critique of conservatives falls flat, however, because he fails to consider the merits of free-market environmentalism, which emphasizes the use of private-property rights and economic incentives to foster environmental protection.
