Not fully supporting IPCC need for drastic action

InfluenceMap Comment:

Emphasizing the opportunity cost of reducing emissions (Press release, September 2014)

Extract from Source:

Plans to address methane emissions, announced today at the United Nations, should focus on replicating the already substantial progress made by the oil and natural gas industry, according to API President and CEO Jack Gerard [...] While the environmental fringe may push for policies that raise energy prices, or undercut supplies – or even suggest we should leave it in the ground – that is not a future many Americans would support: a planned decline in standard of living, loss of mobility, lower family incomes, electricity rationing and population control.

API President and CEO Jack Gerard called President Trump’s “Energy Independence” executive order an important step forward in restoring common sense regulations that are needed to advance the U.S. energy renaissance.
