US leads in emissions reductions — what that means for Biden’s climate agenda

Josh Siegel of the Washington Examiner outlines how the Biden climate agenda will affect the United States’ track record of being the world leader in emissions reductions.

The C3 Take
  • Market forces, not government mandates, have led to the United States being the leader in emissions reductions.
  • Conservative principles that encourage innovation and entrepreneurs are the most effective ways to reduce our emissions domestically and abroad.

“President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to rejoin the Paris Agreement, which Trump rejected, and to meet and exceed the pace of emissions cuts envisioned by the Obama administration in order to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. That means the U.S. would stop adding any new emissions to the atmosphere.”
