Varshney and CSUS business school associate Dennis Tootelian came under fire in 2009-2010 for their California Small Business Association-commissioned analysis of likely effects of California's global warming law AB 32. Their analysis only addressed costs, and was panned by environmental economists for that and other flaws.[2]

It also excludes the value of energy savings and neglects the effects of innovation.”
