Here’s What WAPO Neglected To Mention In Its ‘Scoop’ On Trump’s Climate Deregulation
The Daily Caller cited CEI’s Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis on RCP8.5.
RCP8.5 is often cited as the “baseline” or “business as usual” scenario for global warming, assuming little to no “action” is taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It was also used by the Obama administration to justify its climate policies.
“RCP8.5 was the Obama [Environmental Protection Agency’s] favorite baseline emission scenario, as it is for the Natural Resources Defense Council and numerous other climate advocacy organizations,” Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow Marlo Lewis wrote in August, more than one month before The Post published its “scoop” on the same topic.
