Global warming ideas based on ‘seriously flawed’ work

The MCMAP report fails to perform the most basic task of any cost-benefit analysis – quantifying both the costs and benefits in monetary terms so that they can be directly compared. It also finds net economic savings from many policies intended to reduce greenhouse gasses, even without counting the value of those reduced emissions.

MCMAP’s cost savings estimates are not just wildly optimistic; they are the product of a purely fictitious analysis.
