Where Does Republican Anti-Environmentalism Ultimately Come From? Economic Inequality, Says Krugman

This is one of Krugman's best, and that's saying something. He explores both the decline of environmental quality in America from the bipartisan days... Nixon was a committed environmentalist, and his presidency was a heyday of environmental protection legislation (not to mention some unrelated very unsavory things)... to the present day, in which exceedingly wealthy individuals and corporations can literally buy whatever legislation they want, legislation that allows them to pollute our air, water and land almost without limit. Krugman ties it all together in his usual lucid prose; please read the article.
