Chamber of Commerce Blames Environmental Activists for $91 Billion in Economic Loss During 2018
The Chamber of Commerce and trade unions took aim at anti-fossil fuel activists in releasing a scathing report on Tuesday that concluded that their form of environmentalism slowed economic activity by over $91 billion in the U.S. in 2018.
“Taken together, anti-energy activism has helped prevent at least $91.9 billion of economic activity in the United States, which is larger than the entire economies of 12 states,” according to the report, “Infrastructure Lost: Why America Cannot Afford To ‘Keep It In the Ground.’”
The report was issued by the Chamber’s Global Energy Institute and the Laborers’ International Union of North America.
