Greenhouse gas limits won’t damage the economy
A report, just released from the Energy Information Administration, an independent arm of the U.S. Energy Department, indicates that mandatory limits on U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases would not significantly affect economic growth rates through 2025, countering the Bush administration and general Republican perspective to the contrary. The report can be found at www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/aeo/
I’ve long asserted that FAILURE to limit greenhouse gases will harm the economy from increased mitigation costs resulting from what we might think of as natural weather or ecologically related disasters and disruptions. One of a few cries in the wilderness of short term corporate greed.
