US going net-zero will cost more than $11,300 per person per year in 2050 according to new Nature study

That is almost 500x as much as average American willing to pay

That won’t end well

my comment in WSJ

Compare the cost of US net-zero at 12+% GDP with the UN Climate Panel estimate of cost if we do *nothing* against climate change:

2.6% of GDP by 2100

We are currently doing too little, but doing too much is also dumb

Even if entire US went net-zero today and stayed net-zero for the rest of the century

impact rather small, reducing temperature rise in 2100 by 0.3°F (0.16°C)

Because vast part of 21st century emissions come currently poor world

Even if entire rich world went net-zero today for rest of century

impact rather small, reducing temperature rise in 2100 by 0.96°F (0.5°C)

Because vast part of 21st century emissions come currently poor world
