RGGI Means Lost Jobs, Higher Taxes and Less Freedom

CLICK HERE to read the Institute for Energy Research analysis debunking a bogus pro-RGGI “study” that falsely claimed the Cap & Trade scheme has benefitted New Jersey’s economy!

  • FACT: The RGGI Cap & Trade tax has already cost ratepayers $1.6 BILLION dollars, driving up electricity rates, while giving politicians and bureaucrats a slush fund to subsidize failed “green energy” projects and other Solyndra-like schemes!
  • FACT: Market forces have already driven CO2 emission levels in the RGGI states well below the goals set by the Cap & Trade scheme – yet RGGI proponents still want to keep this job-destroying tax!
  • FACT: “According to projections by its own consultants and energy officials” RGGI is not expected to have any effect on reducing carbon emissions until the year 2030. (Source: New Jersey Watchdog)
  • FACT: Despite already having met emissions targets, RGGI bureaucrats are looking to make the cap more stringent – a move that will drive electricity rates even higher and result in even more job losses in New Jersey!
