Emissions Impact

The impacts of human greenhouse gas emissions are relatively minor. Although carbon dioxide and methane emissions likely cause some warming, alarmists exaggerate their impacts. For example, covering the United States with enough wind turbines to eliminate all electricity-sector greenhouse gas emissions will likely cause more warming, despite wind turbines being an emissions-free power source.
