The third in the IEA’s ‘Zeroing In: Free market approaches to the 2050 target’ series. The series will cover a range of ideas and viewpoints, with IEA spokespeople speaking to an array of experts and academics on how the free market can, or cannot, achieve the government’s target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. Over the last three decades, governments have repeatedly set targets – often for their successors, or their successors’ successors – which may be missed, but then replaced by more ambitious targets. So what can be done? Are we on the right track? Is this even the right track to be on? Our third guest, Dr Jamie Whyte, is a classical-liberal academic and author of Crimes Against Logic.
