Opposing IPCC need for dramatic action

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposed to dramatic reductions in GHG emissions (Evidence from joint statement submitted to the EPA's consultation on 'Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources: Electric Utility Generating Units', December 2014, p 11)

Extract from Source:

THE PROPOSED RULE IS ALREADY CAUSING IRREPARABLE HARM AND SHOULD BE WITHDRAWN The aggressive emission reduction targets that EPA has proposed will cause significant and irreparable harm to the Associations’ members. Although the final compliance date is not until 2030, EPA’s proposal would require that the majority of emission reductions occur within a few years, meaning that immediate, rushed action on the part of the Associations’ utility members is necessary to achieve those goals.
