The Costs of Achieving the Obama Administration’s GHG Emissions Goals

The Costs of Achieving the Obama Administration’s GHG Emissions Goals

The Obama Administration made an international pledge to reduce U.S. net greenhouse gas emissions 26% to 28% below their 2005 level by 2025. It also endorsed an eventual goal of an 80% reduction in emissions by 2050.L

The administration has argued accomplishing these goals will be good for the economy and create millions of good paying middle class jobs. If this all sounds too go to be true, that is because it is. And the evidence comes from the unlikeliest of sources . . . the Obama Administration.
