Around the country, states and localities are convening “Climate Change Task Forces” aimed at developing plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. But according to a recent study by the Science and Public Policy Institute, all of these action plans will accomplish little. Comments study author, Bob Ferguson: “In every case, these plans include a lengthy list of prescribed actions spread across all segments of society that are aimed at reducing future greenhouse gas emissions to a level below some arbitrarily set target. In no case do any of the government plans lay out what real-world effects their cuts will supposedly have. And why not? Because none of the Climate Action Plans will actually have any meaningful effect on the climate – or any change in future temperatures or sea levels.”
