What the Inflation Reduction Act Teaches the Environmental Movement

Kelsey Grant writes in RealClearEnergy about the lessons learned from the Inflation Reduction Act.

The C3 Take
  • While many activists believe in a “my way or the highway” approach to environmentalism, the Inflation Reduction Act has shown us that bipartisan climate solutions provide us the best pathway forward to lowering emissions.
  • Despite the misconception that conservatives think climate change is a hoax, many Republicans are offering pragmatic solutions to spur energy innovation and reduce our environmental footprint.
  • By coming together to pass common sense, pro-growth climate policies lawmakers can make a lasting positive impact on our environment and economy.

“Environmentalist organizations who want to make a lasting difference for our climate will have to recognize the truth: Climate change is a long-term problem, and partisan legislation can only offer a short-term fix. Sustainable, meaningful change requires a dedicated effort to build a bipartisan coalition, coalesced around a common goal but open to debating different visions of how we get there.”
