Carbon emissions spiking despite clean energy surge

Ben Geman of Axios reports that carbon emissions are spiking despite a clean energy surge.

The C3 Take
  • A new report from the International Energy Agency shows that carbon emissions are spiking as economies recover from the pandemic, despite a global push to invest heavily in clean energy technologies.
  • This report highlights the fact that addressing climate change is a global issue and that international accountability is needed.
  • The best way to get developing nations on board with climate targets is by offering solutions that are rooted in economic freedom.
  • As the U.N. gathers in Glasgow to discuss global climate objectives, they should look to innovation and economic freedom as the solution.

“[The report] shows how, despite surging renewables, the global energy system remains far from an emissions-slashing pathway that achieves Paris agreement goals for limiting global warming.”
