Getting climate, energy & environment news right.

A Turning Point in the Climate Debate

John Hart writes in The Dispatch on how the invasion of Ukraine has created a turning point in the climate debate.

The C3 Take
  • Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has shown the impracticality of progressive climate policies.
  • Conservatives have the opportunity to lead on climate by finding pragmatic solutions that lower energy prices, reduce emissions, and counter Putin.
  •  Specifically, conservatives should promote policies that reduce regulations, fund research and development, and increase production of all domestic energy sources.

“For Republicans, banning imports of Russian oil and doing everything possible to ramp up supply at home are no-brainers. Expect candidates, including some Democrats, to hammer both themes until Biden relents. Yet, conservatives have an opportunity to offer something more ambitious and transformative than ‘Drill, Baby, Drill’ 2.0. We can reshape the climate debate and redefine what it means to be serious about environmental stewardship for decades to come.”
