Better Off With The European Model? Work Less, Play More, And Save The Planet

That’s what at least one economist believes.

The shift from a U.S. work model to a more “European” one – which includes shorter work weeks and more vacation time — could cut as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, according to a new report from the Center for Economic and Policy Research. The study claims that scaling back on work hours could bring down greenhouse gases.

“The calculation is simple: fewer work hours means less carbon emission, which means less global warming,” economist David Rosnick said.
