Opposing UN Climate Treaty

InfluenceMap Comment:

Supporting weaker Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and or opposing the UN treaty itself (U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Institute for 21st Century Energy,  President and CEO, Karen Harbert, June 2015)

Extract from Source:

In recent testimony before Congress, the Energy Institute’s Karen Harbert took the Obama Administration to task for failing to explain how the country was supposed to meet the greenhouse gas emissions goal outlined in the Intended Nationally Determined Contribution—or INDC—it submitted to the United Nations. The Obama Administration pledged that the United States will aim to slash its net greenhouse gas emissions 28%, below the 2005 level by 2025. Here’s the problem: The emissions reductions expected from the programs the administration has announced thus far don’t even come close to the 1,790 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents (MMTCO2) needed. After analyzing the administration’s plans, we figure about 41% of the goal is still unexplained
