Obama just disgorged a new “report” on global warming in which he claims 70,000 Americans will die from global warming and the change in the climate will cost the US$34 billion in coping costs.
This absurd prediction was reported today by the AP…
Failure to act on climate change could cause an estimated 57,000 deaths in the United States from poor air quality by 2100, the Obama administration argued in a new report Monday that warns of dire effects of global warming.
The report underscores the costs of inaction on climate change as well as the benefits from taking action now. The administration estimates that 12,000 people in 49 U.S. cities could die from extreme temperatures in 2100.
…The report says actions to slow climate change could save about $3.1 billion in expected costs from sea-level rise and storm surge in 2100, while the power sector could save as much as $34 billion by 2050 in avoided costs for additional electricity for air conditioning and other uses.
An estimated $3 billion in avoided damages from poor water quality could be saved by 2100, the report said.
