Will the green conservatives please stand up

Traditional conservatism involved anxiety to protect the natural environment and preserve it for future generations. Tony Abbott's 'conservationism' may win votes, but it's quite a different ideology.

At his post-carbon-tax media conference, Prime Minister Abbott celebrated the repeal of the Gillard government’s carbon laws by saying “we are a conservationist government... we’ve only got one planet and we should pass it on to our children and grandchildren in as least as good shape as we found it”.
