Biblical Scholars Challenge Pelosi's 'Scripture' Quote.

Tip for politicians of all parties (Mike Huckabee had trouble with this too):

If you're going to rely on a Biblical quote to advance a policy position...make sure the quote actually exists.

It would have been safer for her to say something like "we can glean from scripture...."
As it is biblical to care for nature. It is a commandment. Judaism looks at performing a commandment/mitzvah as an act of worship. I wouldn't be surprised to see something like this in the Talmud as it is implied in the OT.

I guess Nancy is making her own midrash. ;)
