The Best Solution on Climate Change Requires Congress to Act - Bernie Sanders (VT) Introduces Legislation

The Guardian - February 16, 2013

Bernie Sanders, US Senator from Vermont:  I introduced a bill to reduce US greenhouse gas emissions because it's the right move for current and future generations.

Unless we take bold action to reverse climate change, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are going to look back on this period in history and ask a very simple question: Where were they? Why didn't the United States of America, the most powerful nation on earth, lead the international community in cutting greenhouse gas emissions and preventing the devastating damage that the scientific community was sure would come?

Legislation that I introduced(pdf) with the support of leading environmental organizations in the country can actually address the crisis and do what has to be done to protect the planet.

howdy folks
