A market economy and individual freedom are needed to overcome threats to our environment and health.
Humanity faces both serious and urgent environmental and health problems. We have neither the time nor the money to prioritise anything other than the most effective actions. Today, however, environmental and health issues are too often characterised by symbolic politics and wishful thinking.
Ephi presents facts and analyses to contribute to an environmental and health debate based on reality - not on opinions and emotions.
When others paint the future in dark colours on the contrary, we look to the future with confidence. Because throughout history, humanity has coped with many serious threats. We have always done so through more human activity and technological development. Never by turning back the clock.
When others turn to politicians for solutions we look for answers among engineers and entrepreneurs. Because we are convinced that the environmental and health threats of our time are not primarily political challenges, but rather engineering and economic ones.
When others see market economy and individual freedom as a threat against our environment and health, we believe that they are the prerequisites for overcoming them. After all, it is these values that have lifted humanity out of misery and poverty and given us prosperity and well-being.
However, humanity faces both serious and urgent environmental and health problems. Therefore, we have neither the time nor the money to prioritise anything other than the most effective actions. However, environment and health issues are characterised by symbolic politics and wishful thinking. We want to help change that. Environment and health issues need more facts and serious analyses, less emotions and opinions.
