Timothy Puko and Andrew Restuccia report on The Wall Street Journal that President Biden has called for sharp emissions reductions targets.
- President Biden has called for the United States to reduce our emissions by 50-52% (based off of 2005 levels) by 2030.
- Since 2000, the United States has reduced our energy emissions faster than any other country due to market forces and the fracking revolution.
- If we want to reduce emissions we should look to the private sector, not government mandates. As we have proven, economic freedom is the best way in which we can have a healthier planet.
