It is good to see that U.S. Senators are publicly agreeing with the overwhelming scientific evidence that global warming is fact, not fiction and that the federal government should quickly act to address the issue.
Unfortunately, senators cannot seems to agree on what to do. In the words of Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.). “I’m looking for a solution, but I’m not going to join the crowd that thinks it’s simple.”
Including incentives for energy efficiency rather than for oil and gas development (in the current energy bill) and reinstituting vehicle efficiency standards don’t seem to make the grade despite growing concern about US security and our dependence on foreign oil.
