Climate setbacks aren’t the end of climate action

Quill Robinson and Jessie Buendia write in The Hill on how Congress can pass bipartisan climate action.

The C3 Take
  • The Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia vs. EPA put the onus on Congress, not the regulatory state, to enact climate policies.
  • Over the last few years policymakers on both sides of the aisle have come together to pass major pieces of bipartisan legislation that invested significant funding toward energy innovation.
  • To make more meaningful progress, Congress should come together to pass common sense policy reforms such as modernizing regulations and reducing barriers to allow the private sector to thrive.

“Passing bipartisan climate legislation promptly will require finding areas of common ground, rather than arguing over policies that divide Democrats and Republicans. Supporting clean energy development, increasing the climate resilience of communities, and improving energy efficiency are already areas of common ground that can be built upon.”
