Seeker/DNews on when and why environmentalism became a partisan issue

This is Earth Week and Saturday is Earth Day, which is also when the March for Science will be held.  To observe the first and build up to the second, I'm sharing When Did Environmentalism Become So Political?  In it, Seeker/DNews makes a point that I make about the environmental record of Richard Nixon; Tricky Dick signed into law much of the federal legislation of the modern environmental era, making him a very different Republican from the ones who induced me to leave the party in 2000.

When you think of environmentalism, does Richard Nixon come to mind?

Yes, but Nixon as the second greenest U.S. President?  That's something that surprises even me!
