Opposing carbon tax
Actively opposing carbon tax (Main website, June 2015)
Extract from Source:
The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) released a study conducted by NERA Economic Consulting that shows a carbon tax would have a devastating impact on manufacturing. The report, titled Economic Outcome of a U.S. Carbon Tax (Full Study | Executive Summary) found that levying such a tax would result in higher prices for natural gas, electricity, gasoline and other energy commodities. Manufacturing output in energy-intensive sectors could drop by as much as 15 percent and 7.7 percent in non-energy intensive sectors.
