  1. At the risk of tiring those who frequently read comments to these Environmental Leader stories, I will repeat my earlier pleas to call your senators in support of the Kerry-Lieberman bill. Now is a great time to add your voice to the push, in view of the oval office speech.

    I agree with those who claim that the current bill is likely too mild. But, despite any specific weaknesses that it may contain, the bill will have a non-zero effect on climate. And regardless of your individual thoughts on the topic, please remember that the passage of a bill that contains cap-and-trade, cap-and-dividend, or a carbon tax; does not prohibit the passage of another alternative later on – the choices are not mutually exclusive.

    Weaknesses and all, the current bill is probably about the best that the US government can be expected to deliver. A few tiny steps at a time is breakneck speed in a Washington that is chock-full of special interest group lobbyists seeking to delay, baby, delay.

    I hope everyone calls, emails, or writes their Senators to tell them to support this bill. That’s basically the only way to counteract some of that big-money lobbying that’s going on.

    And then next year, or the year after that, we can come back to the table to try and get a few more baby steps accomplished.

    Please, call your Senators. Let’s each do what we can as individuals to ensure that the Senate passes this bill.
