Opposing climate change regulation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests opposing the Obama adminsitration's use of government regulation to respond to climate change and supporting future dereguatlion under new administration (US Chamber's, Institute of 21st Century Energy, CEO Keren Alderman Harbert, Houston Chronicle, December 2016)

Extract from Source:

We have seen a regulation a week practically coming out from the Obama administration. On the oil and gas side, we have new regulations that have come out that are going to restrict where you can drill, where you can't drill, what performance standards you have to meet. [...] We should expect the president-elect's policy to unshackle the energy industry, allowing it to operate more on a market-basis rather than on an ideology-driven basis. I think you will see him eliminate restrictions not only on the production of energy but on the use of energy, and stimulate investment without federal government outlay.

Opposing climate change regulation

InfluenceMap Comment:

Advocating against the need for government regulation to respond to climate change (Platts, November 2017)

Extract from Source:

Rolling back regulations for the energy industry remains a key goal for the Trump administration, a US Chamber of Commerce representative said Thursday during the annual SIGMA fuel marketers association conference in Chicago. "This Trump administration came in focusing on jobs, regulations, requirements, red tape and restrictions," Matthew Koch, vice president of the chamber's Global Energy Institute, said during a presentation. "It's looking to break through those things and the industry has a seat at the table, which hasn't happened before." [...] All of those points had been suggested as ways to relieve the biofuel blending burden on refiners and importers. But lawmakers from some of the most agriculture-dependent states and the governor of Iowa railed against such changes. Still, Koch said his outlook for the energy industry was much improved from last year, with the regulatory changes and repeals already carried out and on the horizon. "America's a better place when Washington doesn't do anything," he said.

Advocating against the need for government regulation to respond to climate change (US Chamber's, Institute of 21st Century Energy, CEO Keren Harbert, USA Today, October 2017)

Extract from Source:

To be clear, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce believes that the climate is changing, and that man is contributing to these changes. We also believe that technology and innovation, rather than sweeping federal mandates, offer the best approach for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the impacts of climate change.
