The updates on climate change continue to paint a dark picture. Despite past policy changes, progress does not appear effective. Industries were disrupted, employees destined to longterm unemployment, but still climate change still continues.
There really needs to be a better approach to fighting the effects of carbon. Proactively capture and storing carbon might be an effective way of mitigating climate change and somewhat protecting our economic progress. Being able to directly eliminate externalities with production will create the needed balance.
Producers need to continuously implement green manufacturing processes. Consumers need to continue to prefer cleaner goods and services. Instead of leveraging climate change for political purposes, instead use free markets and private sector solutions to solve climate change.
