"Name any environmental problem, and the answer is always the same: Increase the size of government."

A great article by Jonathan Adler on the problems of the environmental movement.  Everyone wants a clean environment, but Adler points out why so many of us are skeptical of the green movement:

The environmentalist love affair with big government leads to counterproductive policies and alienates large portions of the electorate. Americans may support environmental protection, but they don’t support a massive, overweening regulatory state. If the only Green answer to ecological concerns is yet more government control of private economic activity, many Americans will turn away.
