No clear position on climate change science

InfluenceMap Comment:

The chamber accepts some of the science of climate change. Accepts existence of GHG emissions, no clear link between human-activity, GHG emissions and climate change. (Website, 2015)

Extract from Source:

The Chamber strongly supports continued environmental improvements, including sensible approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. We believe that economic growth and environmental progress are not mutually exclusive goals. In fact, the United States is the only major country that has actually and substantially reduced its C02 emissions while continuing to grow our economy. To make further progress, we should be guided by what has already worked: gains in efficiency, new technologies, and the increased use of natural gas and renewable fuels.

No clear position on climate change science

InfluenceMap Comment:

The chamber accepts that humans are contributing to climate change, but makes no mention of greenhouse gas emissions nor of the extent to which human activity is driving the change. (Association Website, 2019)

Extract from Source:

The climate is changing and humans are contributing to these changes. We believe that there is much common ground on which all sides of this discussion could come together to address climate change with policies that are practical, flexible, predictable, and durable. We believe in a policy approach that acknowledges the costs of action and inaction and the competitiveness of the U.S. economy.
