The Dystopia We Fear Is Keeping Us From the Utopia We Deserve

Ezra Klein of The Wall Street Journal writes about the importance of energy accessibility.

The C3 Take
  • There is a fear among certain activists and degrowth environmentalists that abundant energy access and human prosperity will destroy the planet.
  • Access to reliable, affordable energy allows communities to grow and countries to become more prosperous, which allows them address environmental issues and invest in resilience and innovation.
  • American can play a lead role in accelerating global access to power by exporting our innovations such as carbon capture and nuclear power to the rest of the world.
  • Increasing the world’s access to affordable, reliable power will help us reach our climate and humanitarian goals faster.

“The fusion demonstration is a reminder not of what is inevitable but of what is possible. And it is not just fusion. The advance of wind and solar and battery technology remains a near miracle. The possibilities of advanced geothermal and hydrogen are thrilling. Smaller, modular nuclear reactors could make new miracles possible, like cars and planes that don’t need to be refueled or recharged. This is a world progressives, in particular, should want to hasten into existence. Clean, abundant energy is the foundation on which a more equal, just and humane world can be built.”
