New IPCC Report Should Inspire Hope, Not Panic

Elijah Gullett writes in RealClearEnergy about the latest UN climate change report.

The C3 Take
  • The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s report makes several arguments for climate optimism.
  • The report points out that 18 countries have been able to decouple economic growth and carbon dioxide emissions while global CO2 emissions had a net decline of 5.9 gigatons from 2000 to 2015.
  • While the report includes good news, it is not an excuse to slow down efforts to address global climate change; instead it should incentivize global leaders to adopt policies that are rooted in economic freedom.

“The IPCC report will undoubtedly produce more doomsday headlines in the coming weeks, but rather than embrace despair, we should use the IPCC’s insights to prepare for climate challenges. We have all the tools we need to combat climate change: human ingenuity and collaboration. This fact alone should make us all a little more optimistic about our earth’s future.”
