Clean Energy Bill Survives: Political Realists Rejoice, Climate Science Realists Demand More

Now the next challenge: how to stop this bill from being weakened as it winds itself through the House and the Senate.

Continued from previous page


I commend Chairmen Waxman and Markey for their leadership in this historic action by the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The bill represents a crucial step forward in addressing the global climate crisis, the need for millions of new green jobs to end the recession, and the national security threats that have long been linked to our growing dependence on foreign oil and other fossil fuels.

I encourage Congress to further strengthen this excellent legislation during floor consideration and move to pass this bill in both the House and the Senate this year.
