You're a fucking idiot. The reason the leftards are up in arms is because they view regulations as a way to protect the environment. But they're taking everything to the extreme and neglecting the people first who are being squeezed by said regulations. For example, there are many families who depend on the income from coal miners. But coal pollutes the air so of course the leftards want to regulate this type of pollution which will obviously affect the incomes of coal miners. So you have to weigh the cost of having a job vs. the cost of damaging the environment. Same goes for cars. We can regulate to a certain extent until we start affecting auto workers. There's always a cost/benefit to regulation. Same goes for the economy. Obviously, if we have zero regulations in place, this will help the flow of money, but the downside is that the top competitors will form monopolies (Amazon, facebook, apple, google, etc.) and Wall Street will destabilize the world economy by gambling with other people's money.

It's not just as simple as saying one group is for the environment and one group is against it. Conservatives love a good hike in nature just like the libtards, but they also recognize the human capital that the libtards aren't taking into consideration in their quest to turn the earth into a hippie paradise. The system of competition we have set up already puts every element of the economy in danger, but the effects are long term so it's not easy to spot unless you understand the law of Cause & Effect.
