The Breakthrough Institute is a global research center that identifies and promotes technological solutions to environmental and human development challenges. They believe that human prosperity and an ecologically vibrant planet are possible at the same time. They are progressives who believe in the potential of human development, technology, and evolution to improve human lives and create a beautiful world. They are researchers, analysts, and writers who reject outmoded orthodoxies on the Left and Right, and are dedicated to new ways of thinking about energy and the environment. They are the authors of reassessments of progressive assumptions, from "The Death of Environmentalism," which argued for transcending a nature-based politics to Where Good Technologies Come From, which demonstrates the critical role government has played in the development of technologies from the railroad to the iPhone. They are dedicated to bringing new ideas to the table that change the debates over energy, the environment, and the economy so they better reflect the global challenges of the 21st century.
