Strongly supporting policies maintaining high GHG emissions energy mix

InfluenceMap Comment:

Opposing specific measures to transition the energy mix of the economy away from fossil fuels (Twitter, June 2013)

Extract from Source:

"Energy prices are guaranteed to rise." Read NAM's CEO, Jay Timmons, address Pres. Obama's new #climate change plan: http://bit.ly/10iQ2e1 (Links to NAM website) 'The President’s plan puts our country on a path toward the elimination of fossil fuels from our energy mix that is wholly inconsistent with his promotion of an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy plan just a few months ago. Even if your sector is not directly affected by the President’s announcement today, you soon will be. The EPA is not going to stop with today’s announcement. First, it will be coal. Then it will be natural gas. Ultimately, this plan will make the United States less energy secure, less affordable and unable to meet our future energy needs.'

Directly advocating for measures that will maintain a high GHG energy mix, running an advertising campaign in favour of new Dakota Access Pipeline (NAM Leaflet, September 2016)

Extract from Source:

In an unprecedented move, three members of President Obama's own administration just said "No" to improve our nation's energy infrastructure. The Department of Justice, Department of the Interior and the Department of the Army announced this month they will "reconsider" approval for part of the Dakota Access Pipeline - a $3.78 billion infrastructure project that is already more than halfway built. Dakota Access has already received federal and state approvals - after a two-year permitting process - that were recently upheld by a federal judge. Tell the Obama Administration: America needs infrastructure investment. Allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue construction.

Supporting policy that will promote increased oil development (Press Release, April 2017)

Extract from Source:

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) members and energy supply chain manufacturers Eric Meyers of Oil City Iron Works, Inc.and Ed Grand-Lienard of Special Products & Manufacturing, Inc. applauded President Donald Trump’s signing of an executive order directing the U.S. Department of the Interior to review options for opening up land for more energy exploration. “As manufacturers in the energy supply chain, we thank President Trump for keeping his promise to address regulations and restrictions that cut off energy development and hurt small businesses. “For manufacturers like Oil City Iron Works and Special Products & Manufacturing, this executive order will help us put more people to work making the castings, valves, pumps and oilfield equipment as well as welding and assembling the products needed to power new energy development and exploration in the OCS. These are critical jobs to ensuring access to affordable energy.“We thank this administration for being in touch with manufacturers’ needs and how to make energy resources available here in the United States.”

Supporting unconventional gas production (NAM website, press release, March 2016)

Extract from Source:

Our ability to produce more and grow the economy while lowering emissions is dependent on access to reliable and affordable energy. The shale revolution has served as a major bright spot for manufacturers and has been a key driver in new investments across the country that have added hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs. “New technologies and efforts already being deployed are allowing for more oil and gas production with fewer emissions. Meanwhile, manufacturers continue to lead in developing new solutions that allow for greater energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. The NAM strongly urges the administration to avoid issuing any unnecessary or duplicative regulations that would limit manufacturers’ access to critical energy resources.”

Supporting specific measures to maintain high GHG energy mix (Joint letter to Congresspersons, August 2016)

Extract from Source:

We also support the portions of section 3116 of H.R. 8 and section 1015 of S. 2012, which repeal the ban on fossil fuel use in Federal buildings that was included in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007.

Advocating for policy makers to support unconventional oil production (Press Release, March 2017)

Extract from Source:

National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons issued the following statement in support of President Donald Trump’s signing of the official permit to begin work on the Keystone XL pipeline: “With this swift action, the Trump administration is giving the greenlight for far more than a pipeline. Today’s permit means Americans move even closer to building a monumental energy infrastructure project. That’s energizing news not only for the manufacturers who supply the parts but also for all who depend on reliable sources of North American energy to fuel their operations. President Trump understands that energy infrastructure means jobs and paychecks for tens of thousands of families across the country. It’s a good day for manufacturing; it’s a good day for America.”

Directly advocating for measures that will maintain a high GHG energy mix (NAM website, press release, November 2015)

Extract from Source:

Washington, D.C., November 6, 2015 – Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers, which represents more than 12 million men and women who make things in the United States, and Terry O’Sullivan, general president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, which represents nearly 400 local union chapters in the United States and Canada, issued the following joint statement on President Obama’s decision to deny authorization of the Keystone XL pipeline:“Proving politics is more important to this White House than American jobs, President Obama today killed the opportunity to create thousands of long-term jobs and advance North American energy security. After years of holding this project hostage by delaying a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, the President turned his back on hardworking Americans, who overwhelmingly support the pipeline. Manufacturers, all workers and all Americans deserve far better than to be treated so poorly.”

Suggesting high GHG emissions energy sources are desirable in a future energy mix (Blog, June 2017)

Extract from Source:

Across this country, voters and elected leaders want to see the growth of manufacturing in the United States. If you support manufacturing, then you should support the continued development of American energy. Manufacturers use all forms of energy—oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear and renewables. America should lead the world in the development and deployment of all these energy forms.
