Ryan on climate change
Ryan, who announced this month he’s running for president, said one reason he’s concerned is that he doesn’t think the answers to issues like climate change are going to come from a “centralized bureaucracy” in Washington.
“I’m concerned about it because if we are going to decarbonize the economy, it’s not going to be some centralized bureaucracy in Washington, D.C., that’s going to make it happen,” Ryan said during an interview on CNN’s “New Day.”
“It’s going to be part targeted government investments that do need to be robust,” he continued. “But it’s going to be the free market that at the end of the day is going to make that happen. They have the magic of the free market. They have the innovation, the creativity, the profit motive.”
