Forging a path to significant reductions in carbon emissions, while protecting jobs, economic recovery and energy reliability, will require us to remove politics from energy and climate policy – to move past an us versus them mentality towards collective action and cross-sector cooperation – to let facts and science, not politics and posturing, be our guide when so much is at stake. We can make measurable progress in the fight against climate change when we’re informed, unbiased and united in a simple commitment to appreciating the complexities of this task.
