Quotes by David Montgomery

Climate Myth What the Science Says
"even if all of the climate science was accepted as good science, we still need to worry about the bad economics and bad policy analysis that had been used to leap from conclusions - to leap to conclusions about what should be done from that basis."
31 March 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"it's a wholesale change in the entire world's energy system that you commit yourself to when you say we're going to go for preventing global warming"
31 March 2011 (Source)
Scientific studies have determined that current technology is sufficient to reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to avoid dangerous climate change.
"the costs of [CO2 limits] by itself would have far outweighed any benefit we could have gotten from those changes"
31 March 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"We would not notice a difference to the US to anything that was happening to us because of climate [if we introduce CO2 limits]"
31 March 2011 (Source)

If every nation agrees to limit CO2 emissions, we can achieve significant cuts on a global scale.

"clearly climate change regulations will diminish [economic productivity]"
31 March 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"No, [the danger posed to the economy by not acting to reduce climate change] does not [outweigh the economic costs to the country of CO2 limits]"
31 March 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"the Waxman-Markey [climate] bill with costs in the range of $1,000-2,000 per household, a loss of 1-2% of GDP of what it would be otherwise, and perhaps close to a doubling of electricity prices"
31 March 2011 (Source)
Numerous independent economic analyses concluded that Waxman-Markey would have resulted in minimal costs to American families, less than 1% reduction of GDP, and virtually no change to electric bills.
"[wind energy] is a more expensive way of producing energy than the alternative"
31 March 2011 (Source)

When you account for all of the costs associated with burning coal and other fossil fuels, like air pollution and health effects, in reality they are significantly more expensive than most renewable energy sources.

"US emission reductions are likely to have costs far greater than their benefits"
31 March 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"efforts to reduce our own emissions would make almost no difference to global temperature"
31 March 2011 (Source)

If every nation agrees to limit CO2 emissions, we can achieve significant cuts on a global scale.
