Want to know why Congress hasn’t done a thing on climate for 30 years? Look at the record of @USChamber, better called #ChamberofCarbon:
In early 2000s, John McCain & @JoeLieberman began working on legislation to reduce carbon pollution; @USChamber & others created phony front group, “United for Jobs,” to oppose their work. #ChamberofCarbon web.archive.org/web/2006100608…
In 2005, @USChamber fought against bipartisan cap & trade legislation, scoring the vote against members of Congress if they voted for it. #ChamberofCarbon uschamber.com/letter/key-vot…
In 2007, @USChamber ran attack ads against legislation to limit carbon emissions. Check out this ridiculous profile in fear mongering. #ChamberofCarbon
In 2009, @USChamber helped kill cap and trade legislation authored by @SenMarkey & @WaxmanClimate. #ChamberofCarbon uschamber.com/letter/letter-…
In 2017, @USChamber paid for debunked study Trump cited as justification for withdrawing from Paris Agreement. #ChamberofCarbon washingtonpost.com/news/fact-chec…
Also in 2017, @USChamber led the charge to kill even a methane leaks rule. #ChamberofCarbon uschamber.com/sites/default/….
