Penn State Behrend professor John Paul Rossi says “greenhouse gases are warming the planet at a rate that is growing faster even than the worst predictions of most climatologists.” That’s not true.
The absence of statistically significant global warming over the last decade confounds the worst predictions of global-warming alarmists.
Rossi is also wrong when he claims that a cap-and-trade scheme would “create more employment.” Government regulation doesn’t create jobs; it destroys them.
Rossi’s “evidence” for the supposed catastrophic economic impact of global warming is the discredited Stern Report, which used sketchy accounting to exaggerate the cost of climate change. Rossi is entitled to his opinions, but not his facts.
