Heavy Industry 101

C3 Solutions outlines how to reduce emissions from heavy industry in Heavy Industry 101. “While economically important, heavy industry is also one of the leading CO2-emitting sectors of both the domestic and global economy. Globally, industry accounts for about 19% of direct greenhouse gas emissions and 33% of total emissions when supply chains are considered. Due to...

Plastics 101

C3 Solutions, in its Plastics 101 policy paper, outlines how to tackle plastic pollution in the U.S. and abroad. “While plastic itself is not inherently bad, the pollution that comes from it causes damage to the environment. However, calls for bans on all plastic are counterproductive. Market forces are making plastics cleaner and more efficient,...

Supply Chains 101

"As Congress and the current administration look to build back our nation’s infrastructure, they should repeal the antiquated and harmful Jones and Foreign Dredge Acts. Allowing cheaper, more efficient shipping would save taxpayers money, increase the economic competitiveness of America’s ports and help to reduce congestion on the roads."

Energy Efficiency 101

Buildings contribute nearly 40% of global emissions. Making residential and commercial buildings more energy efficient will thus be important in reducing energy-related emissions and costs. Through effective tax policy and private sector investments, we can improve energy efficiency in the United States and across the globe.

Wildfires 101

"Over the past few years, climate change has extended wildfire seasons and some regions have become hotter and drier. Moreover, failed government policies and bureaucratic obstacles have made the damage from these fires worse. Through more active forest management and policy reforms, we can adapt to a warmer climate and reduce the risk that wildfires present."

Carbon Tax 101

Carbon Tax 101

"Often floated as the most efficient way to lower our carbon emissions, a carbon tax is a textbook example of blackboard economics: it may make sense in the classroom, but falls apart in the real world. Imposed unilaterally, the tax would harm American households, businesses and the economy at large while providing very minimal climate benefits."

Adaptation 101

Adaptation 101

"Climate change policy solutions largely focus on mitigation such as emissions reduction goals and temperature decreases. While global mitigation efforts can help reduce the risk of climate change, adaptation will be an important tool as well."

China 101

C3 Solutions explains the importance of China in addressing global climate change in China 101. “There is no realistic way the world can tackle climate change if China doesn’t reduce its emissions. Given China’s growing economic and geopolitical influence, it is imperative that the United States and the global community start holding the country accountable...
