The Obama Administration has proposed a number of policies to begin to address the issue of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Given that significant action by the U.S. Congress is unlikely in the near-term, the attention is on regulatory actions by the Federal agencies. Congressional and industry efforts to thwart regulations through legislative and legal challenges continue to pose a threat to sustained action.
CATF works closely with the Administration and leaders in Congress to develop climate policies and regulations grounded in science, technology, and the law. Our record of providing non-partisan, data-driven analysis has won the trust of the key Federal agencies, Senate and House members and staff, by helping to identify and defend policy designs that will achieve the greatest climate benefit at the least cost.
