Understanding the Economic Impacts of Climate Change
The climate change debate has been hijacked by political forces. It’s difficult to decipher what’s true in a polarized environment. Too often, we're driven into partisan camps by media bent on sensationalism. But, we share more common ground than most think.
It's time to promote an intellectually honest and evidence-based discussion about climate change and examine the human and economic costs of policy proposals.
We need to create an economic environment that lowers barriers and encourages research and development. When new technologies are developed, in areas such as nuclear energy, we need to lower political barriers to their deployment.
Accelerating Energy Innovation
New technologies don’t just appear. They often require years of hard work, experimentation, development, capital investment and entrepreneurs willing to take risks.
Developing a More Resilient Infrastructure to Natural Disasters
Natural disasters wreak havoc on the world each year. Too often, the costs of these disasters are amplified by wasteful and inefficient government programs.
Taxpayers should not be collectively punished when natural disasters occur. With smart planning, market solutions and innovative thinking, the impacts of natural disasters can be mitigated and their costs reduced.
We study and promote sustainable agricultural and forestry practices that can have positive impacts on our natural environment, encourage economic growth and create a more durable, flexible and resilient food supply.
Agricultural Sustainability and Innovation
By its nature, agriculture modifies our environment and can have unintended consequences. But it is essential for human survival and flourishing.
