Environmentalists

John Muir and Teddy RooseveltJohn Muir and Teddy RooseveltWho are They?
The photo on the left speaks a thousand volumes. It's environmentalist John Muir with President Teddy Roosevelt. Believe it or not, there was a time when the President of the United States elevated conservation to be a core national value. In 1907, Roosevelt told Congress:

The conservation of our natural resources and their proper use constitute the fundamental problem which underlies almost every other problem of our national life.

But as the 20th century wore on, the only steady advocate for this "fundamental problem" of our national life has been the modern environmental movement.
It's worth getting to know them, if you don't already, and giving credence to what they have to say about climate change, and the solutions that will work.
Here's a partial list:
