Global Warming and Economic impact
“The economic impact would be devastating for the United States. We would see the loss of millions of jobs, entire industries would flee to other countries, our people would face higher fuel costs, higher taxes, leading to lower productivity and a lower standard of living.”
My discussion with Dr. Singer shows how the global warming industry are creating more money for themselves and are pushing the facts aside. (Listen to my interview here.) It is true that very moderate warming has occurred, but much of it is due to natural causes and is therefore almost unstoppable and changes in environmental policy will just impact our economy and have little or no effect on global warming.
- Why is global warming (GW) so much less than greenhouse (GH) models calculate?
- Is GW natural or manmade? If natural, then GW is unstoppable and CO2 is irrelevant
- All policies to control CO2 are then useless–but very costly
- Economic impact of biofuels, of wind/solar, carbon sequestration
- Cap-and-Trade raises energy costs and hurts economic growth
- What really drives the Global Warmers?
