The war in Ukraine and the end of the pandemic have spotlighted a difficult, stubborn reality for zealous environmental activists in the U.S. and Europe: none of their efforts will mean anything unless sizable emissions cuts are made in Russia and China.
Instead of just continually bashing big oil and the technology companies that are helping them to cut emissions and operate more efficiently, environmentalists can form a working alliance with those who consistently lower emissions. The best environmental practices of U.S. oil companies should be replicated in Russia, China, the Middle East, and numerous other places that have dismal environmental records.
Lexington Institute’s Paul Steidler discusses this in an Op-Ed in RealClearEnergy here.
