EI modeling shows the recommendations would prevent 62,000 premature deaths annually by 2050 while offering almost $8 trillion in cumulative health and climate benefits.
EI modeling found a subset of the recommendations would get the U.S. to net zero carbon dioxide emissions a little before 2050 and prevent 62,000 premature deaths every year by 2050.
EI’s Megan Mahajan discusses modeling that finds the Select Committee’s Climate Crisis Action Plan will achieve net zero U.S. emissions and deliver $8 trillion in health and climate benefits by 2050.
EI modeling finds the recommendations would offer $8 trillion in climate benefits through 2050, as referenced by Chairwoman Kathy Castor.
EI modeling shows the recommendations would cut net US greenhouse gas emissions by 37% below 2010 levels in 2030, and 88% below 2010 levels in 2050.
EI research finds the recommendations would put the United States on track to slash net greenhouse gas emissions 88% below 2010 levels by 2050.
Energy Policy Simulator modeling shows a subset of the policy recommendations issued by the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis will put the U.S. on pace for net zero carbon dioxide emissions before 2050, while generating nearly $8 trillion in monetized health and climate benefits.
