Opposing emissions trading

InfluenceMap Comment:

Actively opposing emissions trading. Directly advocating for legislation preventing US airline carriers from complying with the EU ETS (Letter sent to US House of Representatives, November 2012)

Extract from Source:

We greatly appreciated the House's leadership in approving the ''European Union Emissions Trading Scheme Prohibition Act," H.R. 2594 in the fall of 2011. In September, the Senate unanimously passed similar legislation, S. 1956, which will be considered by the House today. We strongly urge you to support this proposed legislation and recommend immediate passage. This legislation allows the Secretary of Transportation to prohibit U.S. aviation operators from complying with the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme (EU ETS). The scheme - which imposes a hefty tax on U.S. passengers and aircraft operators for the sole benefit of EU coffers - violates U.S. sovereignty, international law and the Chicago Convention. The EU ETS is not only opposed by consumers, labor unions, aviation trade associations, airlines and other operators, travel service providers, and manufacturers.
