The U.S. Chamber of Commerce said on Thursday that 'green tape' is getting in the way of the development of green U.S. energy projects while the U.S. economy continues to sag.

The organization that represents over 3 million businesses and organizations called on less opposition from green groups and NIMBY (not in my backyard) protesters.
