Declaring a Climate Emergency Won’t Save the Planet — Energy Security Could

Payne Institute Director Morgan Bazilian and Emily Holland write about how rather than trying to turn national attention to climate change during a historic global energy crisis, the Biden administration should sharply focus its message on addressing energy and national security, a politically savvy strategy that would reap more benefits for the climate.
