Not fully supporting IPCC need for drastic action

InfluenceMap Comment:

Placing emphasis on technological feasibility and economic viability of emissions reductions (WSPA President Catherine Reheis-Boyd statement, Website 2015)

Extract from Source:

We recognize the Governor is continuing his role as a leader in establishing aggressive goals and programs to address climate change. We appreciate the Governor’s statement in Los Angeles this morning that these targets will be difficult to achieve and will require policies that are practical and that minimize harm to the economy. [...] The Governor’s executive order underscores it is more important than ever that policymakers ensure a focus on the most efficient and cost effective means of reducing GHG emissions. WSPA has always said well-designed market-based programs offer the most effective, lowest cost means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Catherine Reheis-Boyd, president of the Western States Petroleum Assn., said the organization supports addressing climate change but fears that the state’s policies are putting it at a “competitive disadvantage.”If lawmakers want to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, she said, “one would hope that decision makers would do it in the most cost-effective manner.”
