President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris climate agreement made headlines, but the Montreal Protocol – and particularly its 2016 Kigali amendment –potentially affects the HVACR industry in a much larger way. Or not. Because at this point, no matter what the government does it’s unlikely to have much of an effect on the water-rushing-downhill force of the low-GWP movement.
The EPA estimates the annual emissions reductions from this rule will be approximately 7.3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (MMTCO2eq) and 114 ozone-depletion weighted metric tons (ODP tons).
The Sierra Club, a grassroots environmental organization, announced it would be joining nonprofit public interest law organization, Earthjustice; the Consumer Federation of America; the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC); and a coalition of state attorneys general in filing a lawsuit against the Trump administration over the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) delays in issuing new energy-efficiency standards for ceiling fans, freezers, boilers, and commercial and consumer goods.
