Think tank argues radical innovations are needed to cope with climate change
It's hard to make predictions, especially about the future. But policymakers have to do just that as they craft rules that improve the economy, protect energy supplies and mitigate climate change. Think tanks and lobbying groups are pushing for solutions ranging from emissions regulations to building solar arrays. However, climate change is a problem decades in the making, and the solutions may take as long to have an effect. As a result, some groups argue that planning for tomorrow with just the technologies we have today is inefficient at best and could undermine progress at worst.
