Politico cited CEI on the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute and more than 20 other national and state groups will send a letter to the president today, opposing the Kigali amendment to the Montreal Protocol — an Obama-era treaty limiting global use of hydrofluorocarbons, a climate change-causing coolant. The letter outlines how the amendment would do “far more economic harm than environmental good,” adding that the environmental benefits are minimal.
“It is not just consumers who will be harmed by the Kigali Amendment,” they write. “So too will millions of businesses and property owners that rely on air-conditioning or refrigeration — hotels, restaurants, office buildings, rail and truck refrigerated transport — and public buildings, such as schools, churches, theaters, and indoor sports facilities.”
