The U.S. government continues to take small steps towards combating climate change, and has the opportunity to make even more substantial progress in some sectors of the economy. However, all progress will for the foreseeable future need to be in the areas of regulation, research and innovation. Congress will not play a proactive role in tackling the complex challenges of climate change and may seek to limit the Administration's authority to address global warming pollution.
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 Senate and House members and staff, helping identify and defend policy designs that will achieve the greatest climate benefit at the least cost.
