Traditional legislation is critical factor to drive climate progress

Sasha Mackler of the Bipartisan Policy Center outlines on The Hill how traditional legislation will be critical to reducing emissions.

The C3 Take
  • In order to meaningfully tackle climate change, legislation that empowers the private sector to innovate must be passed.
  • Big government policies, such as the Green New Deal, are neither politically realistic nor pragmatic to reducing emissions.
  • Conservatives can offer solutions that promote agriculture innovation as well as energy R&D to advance climate solutions.

“Climate policy must also move beyond the singular designs of a historic environmental movement dominated by liberal constituencies that often focus on regulations above a more sustainable legislative consensus. The recent ascendance for economic fairness and environmental justice as a new force in climate politics is a positive development. But the chorus of voices must reach into rural and industrial America, the economic policy community, as well as the business and financial sectors.”
