Are Progressive Climate Policies Worth the Cost?
Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed John D. O’Connor.
Progressive politicians want to commit trillions of dollars on climate change initiatives and accuse anyone who opposes the exorbitant cost of being a “climate change denier.” In this segment, John O’Connor shares a brief history of climate alarmism and the settled and unsettled science behind it. What can be proven is a modest temperature increase, with positive or negative feedbacks poorly understood. Moreover, even if alarmist are correct about hypothesized massive positive feedbacks, which is impressively disputed, the climatic improvement from following the breathtakingly expensive Paris Climate Accord would be negligible. Normal taxpayers and small business owners will suffer needlessly for no benefit.
