The American Chemistry Council appears to have a mixed, although largely negative, interaction with strands of climate change regulations. They have made statements that suggest support for the UN Climate Treaty and appear to show support for CAFE energy efficiency standards in 2012 and Californian energy efficiency targets in 2015. However they appear to oppose dramatic reductions in GHG emissions, in 2014 emphasizing the economic risks, and also opposing the EPA Clean Power Plan in consultation and by taking legal action. They also appear to be strongly advocating for an 'all of the above' policy on the energy mix, which by its nature may oppose transition; this can be seen on their website and in testimony before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee by their President and CEO, Cal Dooley, in 2013.
