Ditch Paris—and Save America

Hayden Ludwig and Kevin Mooney write on RealClearEnergy that leaving the Paris Agreement saves America’s environment and energy.

The C3 Take
  • The United States has officially withdrawn from the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Staying in the Agreement would have driven up costs for American families while doing little to reduce emissions.
  • If America were to magically cut all of its carbon emissions today, it would result in a decrease of two-tenths of a degree Celsius by the end of the century.

“By one estimate based on a U.S. Energy Department model, the Paris Climate Accord could have cost the average family of four over $20,000 in lost income, raised household energy prices by as much as 20 percent, and cost the economy $2.5 trillion by 2035.”
