Eco-modernists attack Bernie Sanders!

Last week, Breakthrough’s Director of Research argued against Bernie Sanders’ alleged climate goals. As Nordhaus wrote for USA Today, Sanders would shut down nuclear power plants and ban fracking nationally — two actions that would increase, not decrease, carbon emissions. Sanders also relies on much-discredited modeling for a 100% renewables vision of the future. Nordhaus’ op-ed was covered by David Unger at the Christian Science Monitor who wrote that more inclusive climate strategies that include natural gas and nuclear might be enough to win conservatives over to climate action.
