President Biden’s Eco-Moonshot Should Use Markets, Not Mandates

President Biden’s Eco-Moonshot Should Use Markets, Not Mandates

Brian Yablonski writes on National Review that President Biden should embrace markets not mandates for his eco-moonshot.

The C3 Take
  • Over 70 percent of the nation’s wetlands and grasslands are privately owned.
  • To achieve his goal of conserving 30 percent of all U.S. lands and waters by 2030, President Biden should call upon farmers, ranchers, and private landowners instead of implementing top-down government mandates.
  • Markets, not mandates, are the best way that we can protect and continue to conserve our land and environment.

“There will be a push to use old, divisive tools on public lands to score easy gains, such as designating new monuments or banning fossil-fuel development. But conserving land does not necessarily require a heavy hand from the federal government. The administration should use this moment to explore newer, more-creative market-based solutions. Indeed, whatever its instincts to the contrary, this would be its best chance of success.”
