Anticipating major policy dynamics rather than reacting to them

BAA anticipates major policy dynamics far in advance, designing strategies that set the terms of key policy debates rather than reacting to them.
“The president is speaking out more often and forcefully than ever about climate in part because the science indicates increasingly serious threats to our economy and security,” said Paul Bledsoe, a former Clinton White House climate adviser and now a senior fellow at the German Marshall Fund. “But Obama also now sees climate as a key political wedge issue, contrasting his view of Republican willingness to deny facts and put the American people in harm’s way with his own efforts to literally help save the planet.”
