Clean Air and Climate Policy for U.S. Growth and Job Creation
This study finds that a robust climate bill could boost the U.S. economy by about $111 billion by 2020 and create as many as 1.9 million jobs.
"All 50 states can gain economically from strong federal energy and climate policy, despite the diversity of their economies and energy mixes.
"Contrary to what is commonly assumed, comprehensive national climate policy does not benefit the coasts at the expense of the heartland states.
"The country as a whole can gain 918,000 to 1.9 million jobs, and household income can grow by $488 to $1,176, by 2020 under comprehensive energy and climate policy."
