children and grandchildren."

Capitol Research Center: The Social Cost of Carbon

The Social Cost of Carbon is a number guesstimated by economists and then manipulated by bureaucrats and environmentalists to justify government activities ranging from the shutdown of coal-fired power plants to the regulation of microwave oven clocks. The problem is that it’s a made-up number with no scientific validity, put out by flawed computer models using data from other flawed models and ignoring the huge cost of not using carbon-based energy.
