E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs) is a national network of business people who believe that environmental progress and economic growth go hand-in-hand.
Global warming poses serious threats to our economy and environment. The time to address this issue is now. We think the United States should be in the vanguard of the new global market for climate friendly technologies. A federal limit on global warming pollution will promote innovation and growth in the clean technology, manufacturing, and energy sectors and keep United States businesses competitive in a carbon-conscious global marketplace. The United States’ lack of clear market signal is compromising the nation’s competitiveness, resulting in lost opportunity. Without a signal to reduce global warming pollution, American businesses continue to make long-term capital investments that commit us to ever increasing greenhouse gas emissions while discouraging the development and deployment of competitive new technologies. Every year that passes without a US carbon emission policy increases the difficulty and cost of averting the threats of economic and environmental disruption posed by climate change. To motivate private sector investment in technologies to reduce emissions from our power plants, our vehicles, and our factories, we need real market signals that apply evenly to all.
