We Were Asked in a Senate Hearing What NAM Thinks About Climate Change; Watch Our 40-Second Answer

By November 19, 2017General, Shopfloor Main

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President of Energy and Resources Policy Ross Eisenberg testified this week during a Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works on reducing air emissions.

The hearing, titled “Promoting American Leadership in Reducing Air Emissions Through Innovation,” also included testimony from the BlueGreen Alliance and the University of Wyoming.

In one particular exchange, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) asked Eisenberg:

“Could you tell me what the position is of the National Association of Manufacturers on climate change?”

Ross’s 40-second answer was notable:

“We believe that we should be acting on climate. Period. Manufacturers are increasingly doing it across the board. Manufacturers are taking matters into their own hands because their investors are demanding it, their customers are demanding it, their employees are demanding it, and they are doing it. So we absolutely believe that we should be acting on climate change.”
