"President Trump, when he was a candidate, was remarkably consistent on this issue ... It's one of the few areas where the Republicans are largely unified, which makes it a bit easier to rally around," said Thomas Pyle, president of the conservative Institute for Energy Research and a strong supporter of Mr. Trump's energy agenda. "The first major step is to undo much of what Obama had done on the regulatory side."
"The Trump administration's decision to review the social cost of carbon is a victory for anyone who favors sound rule-making," Thomas Pyle, president of the conservative American Energy Alliance, said in a statement Tuesday. "The social cost of carbon is an arbitrary and speculative metric that should never have been used to shape federal energy policy."
