Nonetheless, there’s a popular myth that’s been making the rounds for decades (especially in Republican circles, but even much more broadly). This myth says that giving the super rich more money will result in better economic outcomes than giving the middle class and poor more money

Emissions Of SO2, NOx, & CO2 Increase Considerably With Each Degree (Celsius) Of Temperature Rise During Summer, Thanks To Air Conditioner Use

Owing to the widespread use of air conditioners, emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and carbon dioxide (CO2) increase substantially during the summer in the US (and surely elsewhere) — air conditioners use a lot of electricity. As global temperatures increase, that means many more people are turning on (and buying) air conditioners, which then increases the electricity production that is a leading cause of global warming.

MIT: Emissions Trading For Transport = EU’s Cheapest Means Of Reducing Transport Emissions

blue-tesla-model-s-refresh-2

Rather than adopting an approach similar to the corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standard in the United States, the European Union could achieve similar carbon dioxide emissions reductions simply by extending the existing emissions trading system to encompass transportation (in addition to the electricity generation and energy-intensive industries it currently covers), according to a new study from MIT and its research partners

Study: The Stricter The Emissions Testing Requirements In The EU, The More Testing Results Diverged From Real-World Results
