A Jobs-Killing Civilian Climate Corps Is Not the Way To Fix Climate Change

Ronald Bailey of Reason writes that a jobs-killing civilian climate corps is not the way to fix climate change.

The C3 Take
  • Progressives on Capitol Hill have advocated for a new Civilian Climate Corps to address climate change.
  • Climate change is a complex issue that requires a variety of solutions to fully tackle the problem, but expanding federal bureaucracy is not one of them.
  • To truly address climate change and its effects, we need regulatory reform, energy innovation, greater involvement from the private sector, and smart adaptation policies.

“The backlog of forest restoration projects suggests that there are issues on public lands that really need to be addressed, but that is not an argument for creating a vast new federal bureaucracy with as many as 1.5 million government employees. Public projects, such as roads, ports, schools, sewers, and dikes, are usually built by private companies, not by a new Civilian Construction Corps.”
