A study commissioned by a conservative Wisconsin think tank has some dire warnings about recommendations from Governor Doyle’s Task Force on Global Warming. Researcher Paul Bachman, who did the report for the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute, says Wisconsin would lose about 50,000 jobs in the next decade, and disposable income would decline by nearly $10 billion.

Bachman, who’s with the Beacon Hill Institute in Boston, says the loss of jobs and income would be the result of stricter limits on carbon dioxide emissions and greater reliance on more expensive energy from solar and wind sources.
