Global Warming and GDP

Jerry S. Rainforth

A brief summary.

The Fed isn’t the only institution to fall into chicanery. The study was published in a peer-reviewed academic economics journal, given wide media coverage, and cited in a congressional report to justify the Green New Deal. Bogus research makes big splashes. But when it is debunked, there isn’t a ripple.

The best economic model, validated by a Nobel Prize for William Nordhaus, shows that if nothing is done to reduce emissions, warming will reduce world GDP by about three percent by the year 2100. If global GDP continues to grow at the rate it has been growing, then the world in 2100 will be five times richer than it is today. A three-percent reduction in GDP would make us 4.8 times richer instead of 5.0 times. Not exactly catastrophic! Mainstream economics doesn’t deny climate change and accepts that some policies to mitigate it might pass a cost-benefit test. But it does not predict a climate apocalypse, even if we do nothing.

Tim adds:

A warmer world is a more productive world. Cold brings poverty. Less food, more expense for warmth, harder working conditions, etc. I see no reason why planetary warming would reduce GDP at all.

4 Twitter and Facebook cannot continue to have it both ways, at once claiming to provide a public forum and yet producing censorious content of their own.
