Star-Ledger“Compromise could break stalemate on climate bill”

By Star-Ledger Editorial Board

“So if there is room for a compromise that can get us halfway toward a rational policy on climate, then by all means we should seize it.”

“Yesterday, after a meeting at the White House attended by 23 senators, a proposal emerged to limit carbon emissions from electric power plants only. They are responsible for about 40 percent of the nation’s emissions. That would be a good first step. A better bill sponsored by Sens. John Kerry and Joseph Lieberman would impose a broader limit through a cap-and-trade program.”

The Voices of a New Clean Energy Future is a series from individuals who understand the importance of passing comprehensive climate and clean energy legislation – business leaders, politicians, policy experts, and concerned citizens like you. EDF is proud to highlight their voices and contributions to the climate and energy debate.
