InfluenceMap Comment:

Talking legal action against the US EPA, advocating that scientific understandings of climate change remain uncertain. (Huffington Post, June 2012)

Extract from Source:

Lawyers for the industry groups and states argued that the EPA should have considered the policy implications of regulating heat-trapping gases along with the science. They also questioned the agency's reliance on a body of scientific evidence that they said included significant uncertainties [...] "EPA is not required to re-prove the existence of the atom every time it approaches a scientific question."Industry groups vowed to fight on."Today's ruling is a setback for businesses facing damaging regulations from the EPA," said Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers. "We will be considering all of our legal options when it comes to halting these devastating regulations. The debate to address climate change should take place in the U.S. Congress and should foster economic growth and job creation, not impose additional burdens on businesses."
