Not supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Not supporting measures that could facilitate a successful outcome at COP21. Not supporting a deal between the US and China that, according to Whitehouse.gov, would 'inject momentum into the global climate negotiations on the road to reaching a successful new climate agreement next year in Paris.' (Twitter, November 2014)

U.S. Chamber Action ‏@USChamberAction Nov 12 Read the U.S. Chamber's @Energy21 statement on Obama's emissions reduction deal with China here --> http://bit.ly/1u2GPnW <-- (Links to: 'U.S. Chamber Statement on President’s Agreement with China on Greenhouse Gas Emissions', Institute of 21st Century Energy) '"After secret negotiations and without consultation with Congress or the American people, President Obama has agreed to a deal that would handcuff U.S. industry while allowing China an unlimited increase in emissions over the next fifteen years. "If actually implemented, this agreement would give an unfair advantage to Chinese manufacturers while forcing dramatic changes to America’s energy supply that will raise prices, threaten reliability, and increase the burden on hard working American families.'

Not supporting UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests organization does not support UN Climate Treaty (U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Above the Fold, July 2015)

Extract from Source:

In March, The New York Times reported on the Obama administration's strategy of avoiding Congressional approval of any agreement that comes out of climate negotiations in Paris later this year [...] But the administration needs help making the case that it's fine to sidestep Congress over policies that will virtually eliminate affordable and reliable coal power and drastically reengineer the electrical grid. Along comes the White House's favorite think tank to the rescue.

Opposing UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Has commissioned and supported report that opposes US efforts to meet obligations under the UN Climate Treaty (US Chamber, Press Release, March 2017)

Extract from Source:

 Meeting the commitments President Obama made as part of the Paris climate accord could cost the U.S. economy $3 trillion and 6.5 million industrial sector jobs by 2040, according to a comprehensive new study prepared by NERA Economic Consulting. The study was commissioned by the American Council for Capital Formation with support from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for 21st Century Energy.[...] “This groundbreaking study is the first of its kind to showcase the economic pain and job loss that would result from imposing ever-tightening climate policy regulations on the U.S. industrial sector,” said Margo Thorning, senior economic policy advisor to the American Council for Capital Formation Center for Policy Research. “This study does the analysis that the Obama administration should have done in the first place, and it finds that it is next to impossible to meet the Paris pledge gap without major new restrictions on the manufacturing and industrial sectors – restrictions that could reverse the manufacturing renaissance we are currently experiencing, pushing jobs back overseas,” said Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Institute for 21st Century Energy.
