Not fully supporting the need for climate change regulation

InfluenceMap Comment:

The API is explicitly supporting a market-based response to climate change rather than government regulation. (Corporate Website, 2019 State of American Energy Report, p.44)

Extract from Source:

 Markets, not government interventions, should determine energy sources for power generation. They reward innovation, work toward lower prices, reduce emissions in the power sector and benefit consumers. Because of natural gas’ abundance and flexibility, it is increasingly the fuel of choice for generating electricity. Markets should be allowed to function freely, without government putting its thumb on the scales.
