Not fully supporting IPCC need for drastic action

Emphasizing economic considerations in responding to climate change (Main website, 2009)

Extract from Source:

Successful U.S. greenhouse gas emission reduction policies will: • Prioritize the removal of market barriers to achieving energy efficiency and emissions reduction at a net economic gain; • Support economic growth while avoiding severe economic dislocations; • Create a single national greenhouse gas (GHG) registry, which can be used by states and other entities; • Preempt state climate change laws, regional programs, and related litigation; • Prevent undermining or disruption of interstate commerce; • Be equitable and economy-wide in scope; • Recognize the different competitive environments and abilities of sectors; • Employ the most cost-effective implementation mechanisms; • Avoid creating “compulsory” manufacturers, who would bear the burden for emissions and actions they do not control;

Emphasizing economic considerations in responding to climate change (Main website, June 2015)

Extract from Source:

Every day, American manufacturers do their part to improve the environment. We develop new technologies to promote energy efficiency. We reduce waste and recycle materials. We focus on sustainable production practices. U.S. manufacturing is the leader in creating innovative solutions to advance renewable and alternative energy and greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) reduction technology. At a time when the U.S. and global economies are under extreme pressure, policymakers should look very cautiously at new government programs to expand environmental rules or impose entirely new regulatory regimes. The NAM represents the best interests of manufacturers on a variety of environmental issues, including air and water quality regulations, EPA and state environmental justice procedures, sustainability practices, hazardous waste disposal policies, chemical security and management and E-waste programs.
