New Climate Report Emphasizes the Need for Energy Innovation

Jeff Luse writes in RealClearEnergy about the need to double down on innovation and economic freedom.

The C3 Take
  • A recent report from the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) projects that the world temperature will likely temporarily pass 1.5° Celsius above pre-industrial levels in the next few years.
  • While it is hard to know the exact degree of future warming, policymakers and the innovators should look to reduce high-risk, low probability events with solutions rooted in economic freedom.
  • In the U.S., this starts by modernizing regulations to bring more clean energy projects online.
  • Internationally, policymakers must export reliable and affordable energy to the developing world and embrace free trade.

“The findings from the WMO report, and other related climate reports, do not paint a picture of environmental catastrophe. Nor are they an excuse to take no action. Instead, these reports should catalyze policymakers and the private sector to double down on an innovation agenda.”
