Where we stand on Conservation

Embodying the spirit of American conservation before us, championing well-supported National Parks, proactive forest management for wildfire prevention, and acknowledging hunters and anglers as essential stewards of wildlife sustainability are critical paths forward.

National Parks

The National Park Service is one of America’s greatest treasures, and a legacy of what conservative environmentalism looks like, inspired by the Conservation President Theodore Roosevelt. It supports thousands of jobs around the country and provides 331 million Americans with a chance to access the great outdoors each year. For years, the Service has been underfunded and mismanaged, building up a deferred maintenance backlog of $11.6 billion. This is why we were proud to support the Great American Outdoors Act, which was passed by Congress in 2020 and adopted into law by President Trump, which addresses the backlog and permanently funds the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF).

Forest Management

In 2020 alone, 10.7 million acres of forest were burned in the West, breaking the record for most acres burned since record-keeping began in 1983. For years, the United States has taken a preservationist approach and frowned upon active forest management, contributing to more severe wildfires. More proactive measures must be taken to limit the severity of these wildfires, which are a huge threat to wildlife and human populations as well as a major contributor to carbon emissions. Methods such as controlled burns, forest-thinning and underbrush-removal are crucial forest management practices.

Where we stand on Climate Change

For too many Americans, climate action feels confusing or out of reach. ‍ While two-thirds of the country believe we are not doing enough to address this problem, the climate conversation has been stuck between alarmism and inaction. We can do better.

Permitting Reform Messaging

Unleashing the full force of American energy is important not only for the economy and national security but also for our climate. It’s important to acknowledge that American energy is clean energy – American natural gas is 41% cleaner than natural gas produced in Russia. By leading the world in energy production, the United States is leading the world on climate.

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear Energy 101

Nuclear energy is the largest source of carbon-free electricity in the United States. Despite this, some environmental groups seek to stop any and all nuclear energy development by pushing misleading and alarming rhetoric, along with increasing government overregulation.
