Study: U.S. Economy Can Grow While Reducing Greenhouse Emissions

U.S. (TGW) - Renowned economic professor in coalition with Yale's School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has created a new website called See it for yourself. There he answers the following question: What will reducing greenhouse gas emissions do to the American economy?

He examined 25 different economic models -- which project different economic impacts for the same level of emissions reductions -- and synthesized thousands of policy simulations.

He found that under the worst assumptions, GDP would increase robustly, and hardly take a hit.

On the website, you can plug in your predictions and see the outcome.
