To beat climate change, we must beat climate anxiety

Quill Robinson writes in The Washington Examiner that in order to beat climate change, we must first beat climate anxiety.

The C3 Take
  • Climate change is real and poses very real risks, but the climate anxiety being promoted by some activists is counterproductive.
  • Rather than approaching climate change through a lens of negativity, we should approach the challenge with optimism and ingenuity.
  • Addressing climate change with solutions that are rooted in economic freedom and human prosperity will benefit the health of our planet and its people, all while meaningfully lowering emissions.

“The world needs a generation of innovative scientists, shrewd policymakers, and passionate conservationists. Next month, the United Nations will convene COP26, a massive climate change conference where leaders from around the world will discuss how to reduce emissions. Leaders attending COP26, and their successors, must remember that we do not need more activists who have succumbed to nihilism and attack our motivation to act. Until we beat the climate anxiety crisis, the fight against climate change is unwinnable.”
