By point of reference, 7.6% is more than half of the world wide drop in GDP during the Great Depression. During the Depression, GDP dropped by about 30% and unemployment went up 20% or so. Assuming unemployment/GDP is about the same now as then, that would translate into an increase in the unemployment rate of 5%, on top of the fudged figure we already have. And this will be permanent, unless the emission caps are removed (unlikely).
So a cursory reading of the proposed Climate agreement is that an extra 5 Million Americans will be thrown out of work permanently. But hey: eggs, omlets, amirate?
Can someone please explain to me how environmentalists think they're nicer than you and me?
