Climate, War, and the U.N.’s Priorities

Andrew Stuttaford writes in National Review on the geopolitical realities of addressing climate change.

The C3 Take
  • Antonio Guterres, the U.N.’s Secretary General, has said that the war in Ukraine has pushed nations to adopt fossil fuels which is threatening the world’s ability to reach climate targets
  • While the world should indeed lower emissions to reduce climate risk, energy affordability and reliability must be at the forefront for any climate policy to work long term.
  • Expanding economic freedom globally provides the most effective way to reduce emission and increase human prosperity.

“What is madness is to continue to argue for policies that fail to take any account of current geopolitical realities. But then cheerleaders for millenarianism and for central planning at its most reckless (and current climate policies manage to combine elements of both of these appalling traditions) are not known for taking much account of reality.”
