Which of the following organizations — U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Natural Resources Defense Council or the American Coal Council — posted the following paragraph?

“… policies to support CO2 capture and sequestration at power plants and industrial facilities could also help recover almost 37 billion barrels of stranded domestic oil by 2050. This increase in annual oil production using the CO2 from power and industrial facilities could cut crude oil imports by over 55%, create tens of thousands of new jobs, and generate up to $800bln in royalties for states and the federal government. In addition, this increase in domestic oil production could also prevent or delay dirtier fuels from coming to market and help to lower global oil prices as well.”
