“The Lieberman-Warner bill, America’s Climate Security Act (S. 2191), is a promising step forward to putting our country on a path toward avoiding extremely dangerous global warming. While S. 2191 provides a solid framework for sound global warming legislation, there are some significant areas in which it can and should be substantially improved.
“Chairman Lieberman and Ranking Member Warner have stepped forward at a key moment in history. We look forward to further progress as this legislation moves through the Subcommittee and the full Environment and Public Works Committee, and we at NRDC stand ready to assist in any way possible.”
