Phony Climate – Carbon Social Cost Models Justify Green Theft Of Poor

Phony Carbon Social Cost Models
The EPA is using Carbon Social Cost Models that a recent study says are useless when it comes to making policy decisions.
“When it comes to impact of climate change we know even less. IAM damage functions are completely made up with no theoretical or Empirical foundation.”

 

Climate change policy: what do the models tell us?
Chris Cooper (London) · Economics, Business & Globalization ·Environment
Very little. A plethora of integrated assessment models (IAMs) have been constructed and used to estimate the social cost of carbon (SCC) and evaluate alternative abatement policies. These models have crucial flaws that make them close to useless as tools for policy analysis: certain inputs (e.g. the discount rate) are arbitrary, but have huge effects on the SCC estimates the models produce; the models’ descriptions of the impact of climate change are completely ad hoc, with no theoretical or empirical foundation; and the models can tell us nothing about the most important driver of the SCC, the possibility of a catastrophic climate outcome. IAM-based analyses of climate policy create a perception of knowledge and precision, but that perception is illusory and misleading.

 

– Robert S Pindyck in a new paper. And this comes from someone who supports taxing carbon emissions.

    Thanks for comments by astrophysicist Piers Corbyn on the AGW scam. Two related items of interest:

    1. Susan Lindauer, a former CIA asset, reports: “US Government Afraid of American People”

    2. A new paper: P. M. Robitaille, “Forty Lines of Evidence for Condensed Matter — The Sun on Trial: Liquid Metallic Hydrogen as a Solar Building Block,” Progress in Physics 4, 90-142 (Oct 2013): http://ptep-online.com/index_files/2013/PP-35-16.PDF

    Professor Robitaille and I now:
    Agree: The core of the Sun is condensed matter.
    Disagree: The condensed matter is neutrons, not hydrogen.

    With kind regards,
    – Oliver K. Manuel

    Investigator for Apollo
