This is a thorny topic, we may end up really in the weeds. In order that we have a fruitful discussion I have posted more resources than usual, I have divided them into 4 broad categories (rightwing viewpoint/leftwing viewpoint / rightwing solutions /leftwing solutions) and strongly encourage that if you have limited time, choose from the resources that conflict with your world-view.

Key: * if you read no one else from this category, read this.

The article that inspired the topic *https://quillette.com/2019/01/25/the-right-needs-to-grow-up-on-environmentalism/ - the comments on this piece are well worth the read if you want a short cut to the topic.

Environmentalism is not/should not be synonymous with Climate Change

Why is it a left/right divide? Is it? Is it largely a question of priorities?
