With less than six months to go before the United Nations climate summit in Paris, the Environmental Protection Agency has released a new report claiming “global action” to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will bring fewer extreme droughts, floods, storms and wildfires.
The EPA released a report titled “Climate Change in the United States: Benefits of Global Action” which lays out the costs of not reducing greenhouse gas emissions to fight global warming. The report claims cutting emissions would result in billions of dollars in benefits for the U.S. and save thousands of lives every year.
The agency also claims there would be less “extreme weather” if emissions are cut on a global scale. An interesting claim given there is little to no evidence to support the notion that natural disasters are becoming more frequent or intense.
