Environmentalism Needs a New Playbook

Devin Hartman writes in RealClearEnergy that environmentalists need to change their playbook.

The C3 Take
  • The environmental movement often focuses on symbolism instead of pragmatic solutions.
  • This has hurt the climate, largely destroyed bipartisan trust, and cost taxpayers enormously by way of subsidies and higher energy prices.
  • To see true progress, environmentalists must return to durable, market-based solutions that unleash the green thumb of capitalism.
  • As we have shown, free economies are twice as clean as unfree economies.

“Mitigating climate change, mass extinction, plastics pollution, and other serious environmental problems are too important for symbolism to hijack the agenda. Progressive leaders are reinserting pragmatism into the environmental agenda, highlighted by the permitting discussion. Conservatives are reestablishing their own brand of environmental leadership that is compatible with economic opportunity. Green liberty is the victorious playbook.”
