After Failure Of Senate Bill Lobbyists Turning To US House
Since the failure of the US Senate global warming bill, environmental lobbyists are turning their attention to the US House of Representatives, from where the next proposed global warming bill is likely to emerge, politico.com reports.
A bill that is more aggressive than the Lieberman-Warner bill has been introduced by Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and would reduce greenhouse gas emission levels to 85 percent below 1990 levels.
More work on climate change will be taking place this summer, too, with hearings planned by House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman John Dingell (D-Mich.).
Meanwhile, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity is extending a national advertising campaign, including a TV ad that features people waving goodbye.
“We have to say ‘so long’ to our outdated perceptions about coal,” the narrator says. “If we don’t, we may have to say goodbye to the American way of life we all know and love.”
