Not fully supporting IPCC need for drastic action

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting GHG emissions reductions with exceptions. Evidence suggests the organization does not support regulatory action to reduce GHG emissions. (US Chamber of Commerce President and CEO, Thomas J. Donohue, Main website, January 2015)

Extract from Source:

While working to reform the regulatory process, the Chamber will also address specific regulations that we believe would hurt our economy and throw people out of work while achieving little or no public benefit. EPA’s proposal to lower the ozone standard and its Waters of the U.S. rule are two examples. And while we strongly support technological solutions to address greenhouse gas emissions, we do not believe that regulation of these emissions through the Clean Air Act is appropriate or workable.
