The challenges facing the clean energytransition are real, but the impulse to pull back is misguided, warn MeghanSullivan and Jason Bordoff in their article for Foreign Affairs. As carbon emissions continue to rise,mitigating the dire threat of climate change requires much fasterdecarbonization than is currently underway. But this is not the only reason tohasten the transition, they suggest. Poorly implemented half measures are partof the problem, as they are worsening the very geopolitical tensions andeconomic fragmentation that make political leaders wary of stronger climateaction. The authors note that well-designed and far-reaching policies couldhelp overcome this hurdle.
