Statistic of the Day: Going Carbon-Free Would Cost Every American $11,300 PER YEAR

From realistic climatologist Bjorn Lomborg, writing in The Wall Street Journal this week, a jarring analysis of the cost of imposing the Biden/Pelosi/Schumer/AOC carbon-free "Green New Deal" agenda for every American annually:

 

A new study in Nature finds that a 95% reduction in American carbon emissions by 2050 will annually cost 11.9% of U.S. gross domestic product. To put that in perspective: Total expenditure on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid came to 11.6% of GDP in 2019. The annual cost of trying to hit Mr. Biden’s target will rise to $4.4 trillion by 2050. That’s more than everything the federal government is projected to take in this year in tax revenue.

CFIF Public Education Effort Urges Congress to Reject Liberal Wish List, Focus on America’s Priorities Print
Tuesday, June 09 2020

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) this week launched a public education effort urging Congress to reject the partisan policy wish list being pushed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and members of her caucus, as well as others across the country, and to focus on America’s priorities instead.

Specifically, the effort is anchored by a :30 digital ad in Oklahoma, which warns viewers about specific issues in H.R. 6800, the so-called “HEROES Act” recently passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, and acknowledging Congressman Tom Cole for focusing on our nation’s priorities instead.  The ad concludes by asking viewers to call Congressman Cole and ask him to “keep fighting for America’s priorities – and stopping the liberals’ wish list.”

"Priorities"

Founded in 1998, the Center for Individual Freedom is a constitutional and free-market advocacy organization with more than 300,000 supporters and activists nationwide.
