Endangered Species Act Should Not Be Invoked Against Greenhouse Emissions

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 8, 2009 - In response to the announcement by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar that he has reinforced the ruling that prevents the Endangered Species Act (ESA) from being used as a means of implementing federal climate change policy, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Director of Energy and Resources Policy Alexis Bayer issued the following statement:

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is to be commended for this decision to uphold a 2008 ruling by the Bush Administration that the Endangered Species Act (ESA) should not be used as a mechanism to regulate greenhouse gases. Ensuring access to vital, reliable and affordable supplies of energy is essential to keeping domestic manufacturing competitive and revitalizing the economy. By retaining this ruling, Interior has wisely recognized that emissions are a global problem and that it is scientifically impossible to link the emissions from a cement plant in Georgia to the decline in arctic polar ice. The NAM is pleased that the integrity of the ESA, which was not designed to address such complex global issues, has been upheld and that it will not be used as an alternative means to legislation to regulate carbon emissions or halt development of much-needed, responsible energy projects. The appropriate venue for debating control of greenhouse gases is in Congress, and that is where this question should be considered and decided.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation's largest industrial trade association, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the NAM has 11 additional offices across the country. Visit the NAM's web site at www.nam.org for more information about manufacturing and the economy.
