The United States Chamber of Commerce is being subjected to unprecedented attack by a variety of forces on the left.
Its crime? Refusing to go along with the monstrous cap-and-trade scheme which would destroy what’s left of the economy. Here’s the organization’s position on cap-and-trade, as well as carbon emissions:
2. The Chamber’s position on Waxman-Markey
We opposed this specific legislation because it would not reduce the global level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. It is neither comprehensive nor international, and it falls short on moving renewable and alternative technologies into the marketplace and enabling our transition to a lower carbon future. It would also impose carbon tariffs on goods imported into the U.S., a move that would almost certainly spur retaliation from global trading partners.
3. The Chamber’s position on EPA’s proposal to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act:
The Clean Air Act is not the appropriate vehicle for regulating climate change. Even though EPA is only addressing motor vehicles, the Clean Air Act is structured so that once EPA regulates greenhouse gases in any manner; the Act regulates all emitters of the gases which includes stationary sources that have never been subject to EPA Air regulation. To quote Congressman John Dingell, this will be a “glorious mess.” Our economy does not need a glorious regulatory mess, especially now. Reason needs to prevail and Congress needs to enact a comprehensive climate change law.
