The Paris Climate Agreement 101

C3 Solutions outlines the complications and alternatives to the Paris Climate Agreement.

The C3 Take
  • The United States should demonstrate leadership on the global stage when it comes to climate change.
  • It should do so by setting the stage for an innovation-led approach that can be replicated easily by other countries, rather than a heavy-handed regulatory one. Lower taxes, regulatory streamlining, R&D support, and strong economic growth are climate plans that every country should want to sign up for.
  • Ultimately, top-down, heavy-handed global approaches rarely allow for innovation. What we need, with or without a Paris Agreement, is for creative market forces to be allowed to work. It’s the fastest path to decarbonization at scale.

“The U.S. is already leading in emissions reductions through technology innovation. If policymakers are serious about addressing climate change,  they should unleash innovation by investing in research, reducing taxes for businesses, streamlining regulatory barriers, exporting our clean energy technology, and engaging in clean free trade with the international community.”
