Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller says, “The EPA has imposed stringent regulations of carbon dioxide emissions that could restrict economic growth without producing any real environmental gains … an ill-considered, unlawful EPA rule.”
Science shows rising atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is causing global fluctuations in temperatures and storms. The USDA declared over a thousand counties in 26 states to be a natural disaster area. Thailand and Beijing had heavy flooding.
According to The Economist, the Greenland ice sheet is retreating. “The permafrost is shrinking: Alien plants, birds, fish and animals are creeping north: Atlantic mackerel, haddock and cod are coming up in Arctic nets…The Arctic is warming roughly twice as fast as the rest of the planet … If the warming continues, it could eventually disintegrate, raising the sea level by seven meters. Many of the worlds biggest cities would be inundated long before that happened.”
How high is the cost of inaction?
