Adviser: Romney sees no need to regulate greenhouse gases
A top energy adviser to Mitt Romney said Wednesday the GOP presidential contender believes humans have some effect on climate change but that the United States doesn't need to regulate greenhouse gases because emissions already are down.
“What would be the point of it? Why should we impose burdens on our economy for no meaningful effect on global greenhouse gas emissions?” said attorney Linda Gillespie Stuntz, a former deputy Energy secretary under President George H.W. Bush.
She cited the Energy Information Agency outlook showing the U.S. emissions have declined, with the recession and changes like fuel efficiency, and will stay below 2005 levels through 2035.
