The Facts

  • CO2 is not a pollutant but is necessary for human life. Photosynthesis by plants would be impossible without CO2. Over the last 150 years, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has roughly doubled, to 390 parts per million.
  • Average global temperatures have risen about 0.8 degree Celsius over the same period, less than the 1 degree Celsius that standard models would predict.
  • Models predicting more warming are based on claimed “positive feedbacks” from water vapor and clouds, which the IPCC itself admits are uncertain.
  • For the U.S. to achieve an 85% reduction in GHG emissions-the global reduction promoted by the IPCC to avert dangerous interference with the climate-emissions would have to be reduced to a level not seen since the 19th century.
  • EPA’s proposed restrictions on GHGs are expected to increase the cost of a vehicle $3,100 by 2025, and, if successful, would prevent only 0.01 degree Celsius of the expected warming.


  • Urge federal policymakers to establish an independent, rigorous review of IPCC science.
  • Suspend state programs that require or incentivize GHG reduction and avoid state and federal mandates to reduce CO2.
