MIISâ€™s own Jason Scorse offers an interesting perspective on true conservatism and how the changes needed in environmental policy can be supported by the far right.Â In a brief historical re-cap, Scorse demonstrates how known Republicans such as former President Bush (Sr.) and McCain supported cap-and-trade programs and legislations as a revenue generator and environment saver for our country. Scorse elaborates further by critiquing how quickly McCain changed his tune in order to please his party colleagues and the manner in which they have vilified the creation of more rigid environmental policies. Â Scorse offers a strong argument for conservatives to â€œreturn to their roots.â€
