Robert Lorge on Environment


Supports good stewardship, not radical environmentalism

I STRONGLY SUPPORT CONSERVATION as opposed to radical environmentalism, man is part of the environment and must be a good steward of all that God has entrusted mankind with, and that includes protecting and nurturing all of Nature and preserving our Natural Resources for Future generations, which is why I am a avid sportsman, hunter and fisher, and plant hundreds of tress every year on my farm.

Opposes desert protection; let local habitats evolve

I would vote NO on continuing desert protection in California, unlike my opponent. I am a Zoologist, I understand the desert environment, I do not favor desert or desertification, but would allow the transformation and evolving local habitats to take nature's own course, not artificially maintain a desert because someone likes the look of it.

Share costs between EPA & businesses for Fox River cleanup

I STRONGLY SUPPORT having the Army Corps of Engineers and EPA do more to clean up the Fox River system in Wisconsin, and share the costs with local manufacturers instead of punishing current businesses for the ignorant mistakes of the past, which could cost jobs, and which burden should be shared by the Federal government which benefited from tax dollars years ago from those same activities that polluted and which federal help would speed up the clean up process for the benefit of us all.
