Senate Climate Change LegislationThe Senate is to debate a bill in June that could cut total US global warming emissions by 66 percent by 2050. The bill is sponsored by Joe Lieberman and John Warner. Naturally it is meeting some opposition from the Bush administration and its "conservative" allies.
From the Washington Post today:
A conservative, free-market advocacy group will begin airing ads this week pressing Senate Republicans and Democrats to vote against a bill that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.From Reuters, via PlanetArk.com:
Sen. Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat who heads the environment committee, said this version of the bill offers tools to soften the impact of high prices during the transition to a lower-carbon economy. These include a utilities rebate program and tax relief.We'll be following this debate closely in June. Stay tuned.
