# Libertarians' view on environmentalism. ### Pro-libertarian views * http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Privatization_of_wildlife * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free-market_environmentalism * https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_libertarianism ### Anti-libertarian views Are you kidding me?

It's the result of many small decisions that add up, so you can't handle it one lawsuit at a time as [free-market environmentalists](https://www.reddit.com/r/Libertarian/comments/32a5lc/what_is_the_libertarian_solution_to_climate_change/cq9bx47/) would want you to. However, note that there's a small fraction of libertarians who advocate for a carbon tax.
