URGE CHANGES FOR S. 2191
Written by Scott Sklar   
May 17, 2008

STOP THE SENATE FROM PASSING A CLIMATE BILL THAT ONLY PROMOTES NUCLEAR AND CLEANER COAL!

WRITE YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND URGE CHANGES FOR S. 2191

Should the United States support ONLY nuclear and COAL to reduce carbon emissions?

RE: Pending vote on the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act (S. 2191)

This letter give thoughts from clean energy organizations and individuals are writing to urge the Senate to give great care and thought to pending climate change legislation which may come to the Senate floor next week. Please include many of these points in your letter or e-mail to your Senators:

I believe that the grave threats posed by global climate change must be addressed now and action taken to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, the pending vote on the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act (S. 2191), and any amendments that are offered, has the potential for setting the principles and parameters for any federal legislation that is ultimately enacted into law.  Consequently, we believe it essential that any bill that emerges from the Senate meet several criteria.

First, federal legislation must – at the very least – set the United States on course to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by no less
than 80 percent by 2050 – a target higher than the 70 percent goal proposed by S.2191.  However, even a reduction of 80 percent may fall
short of what is actually necessary to avoid the worst consequences of climate change.  A growing number of analyses now suggest that far greater reductions, accomplished within a much tighter time frame, may actually be needed.  Therefore, we urge you to reject legislative proposals that would set merely symbolic or insufficiently aggressive goals.

Second, if a cap-and-trade system is to be part of the nation’s climate change policy, it should be designed thoughtfully and should be viewed as only one in an arsenal of strategies to shift the nation’s economy on to a path of sustainable energy development.
