July 24, 2018: Fred Krupp President of the Environmental Defense Fund penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal
Fred Krupp President of the Environmental Defense Fund penned an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal entitled, Capitalism Will Solve the Climate Problem.
The thesis of the article is that science and capitalism must work together if we are to solve our greatest challenges one of which in Mr. Krupp’s mind is climate change. To quote from Mr. Krupp’s op-ed, “Climate change is a byproduct of the prosperity created by the market economy, but the market similarly can be an engine to generate cost-effective solutions.”
We may not agree with everything he says, but ONE Future members couldn’t agree more with his solution to lower methane emissions. We agree that there are methane emissions which impact greenhouse gas emissions. Our voluntary, performance-based program is exactly what Mr. Krupp is describing. ONE Future members are using the latest scientifically proven technologies and deploying them in the most cost effective and efficient manner to reduce methane emissions.
Mr. Krupp goes on to say “Though climate change presents American industries a daunting challenge, market-based policies can unleash innovation from investors, inventors and entrepreneurs, who will work to build a more prosperous and safer future. Working with accurate scientific facts and the right incentives, the market will find winning solutions.”
ONE Future’s program is exactly what the doctor, or Mr. Krupp, ordered. We are working with investors, inventors and entrepreneurs to find science-based solutions that can be successfully deployed today. We believe that science should drive policy and that regulations will only stymie the market.
Come join us we and be a part of the engine that is generating cost-effective solutions.
