Why there’s still a rational case for climate optimism

Rick Wayman writes in The Hill that there is still a rational case for climate optimism.

The C3 Take
  • Innovators and entrepreneurs are creating new and exciting technologies to curb greenhouse gas emissions and address climate change.
  • Advancements in nuclear fusion, carbon capture, and battery storage all justify climate optimism.
  • Natural climate solutions such as tree plantings and underwater kelp farming will also play a key role in reducing emissions.
  • By empowering the private sector and investing in energy innovation we can meaningfully reduce climate change’s impacts.

“The goal of climate restoration is analogous to the goal of net zero emissions, except the time frame is faster, the scale is larger, and the aspiration is higher. It’s not pie in the sky. Since it requires the discipline of selecting and advancing removal technologies that are scalable and financeable, and since it holds out the promise of a future we can aspire to instead of one we fear, it’s arguably the most practical, implementable climate approach we have.”
