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