John Kasich on Environment

Former Republican Representative (OH-12); 2000 candidate for President


Manage the environment to bequest it to future

Stewardship of the environment is nothing less than a moral obligation -- because God made it and gave it to us to properly manage. It will be part of the bequest we make to our children and grandchildren. We should take care of it. If we intend to provide a better life, and a better world, for future generations, we can’t ignore the quality of the environment we leave them.

Environment and economy are not at odds

For nearly 30 years, we have behaved as if protecting the environment was somehow at odds with the economic growth and prosperity that also are so important to us. This is a false and dangerous dichotomy; it forces unnecessary divisions between those who want to protect the environment and those who want economic progress. [We must get past] the “us- versus-them” rhetoric.. Economic progress and environmental conservation can and must go hand in hand for the sake of this generation and the next.

Devolve enviro policy-making to State and community

There’s a lot of talent in our States and communities -- people in government, business leaders, home owners, community activists. These are the people who should formulate and lead our national agenda on environmental policy. Members of Congress could play a much more positive role in protecting the environment if they spent less time legislating in Washington and more time bringing community leaders together in their home districts to help address local environmental concerns.

Examples of local enviro policy successes

A partnership [between EPA, state & local agencies resolves problems of] overlapping jurisdiction over drinking water in fast-growing southwestern Utah. In Evansville IN, the State worked cooperatively with business & environmental leaders [to return] the city to compliance with Federal pollution laws. The 1998 Quincy Library bill codified a fire management & forest health plan that had been reached voluntarily by county officials, environmentalists, and the timber industry in [Northern California].
