U.S. Senate EPW Committe's Climate Change Principles

The Environment and Public Works Committee of the U.S. Senate has released a brief set of "legislative principles" that presumably will be used to guide climate change policy development in the 111th Congress. The principles are dominated by the development of an emissions cap-and-trade system, but some of the revenue from emissions trading would be used to,

  • "Assist states, localities and tribes in addressing and adapting to global warming impacts"
  • "Support efforts to conserve wildlife and natural systems threatened by global warming"
