Buying Time: How the Private Sector Can Help Overcome Democracy’s Deficits

Description

There were roughly two dozen major pollution control statutes passed up and through 1990, but only one since then. Yet that’s not because consumers don’t care. According to Michael Vandenbergh—author, Vanderbilt Law professor, and former EPA Chief-of-Staff—the stalemate reflects our deeply polarized society while also underscoring the need for private sector efforts more than ever before. Expanding on his conclusions from his award-winning book “Beyond Politics: The Private Governance Response to Climate Change,” Michael discusses harnessing the supply chain to achieve net zero, the impact of work-from-home on emissions, and why government alone can’t solve society’s climate concerns.
