Following the reintroduction of anti-global warming legislation in the Senate, Environmental Defense is sponsoring a petition to advocate for 4 principles for legislative action against global warming, 3 or so of which I lent support to with the following:
*Hard cap & timetable: set a specific, attainable, and sufficient cap and timetable for reducing global warming pollution;
*All sources: include all significant sources of global warming pollution without exempting certain sectors or privileging questionable alternatives such as biofuels;
*Free market: ensure the market, not government regulation, taxation, or subsidy, chooses next generation energy sources that meet the emissions standards.
As you know from my previous correspondence, I believe energy policy to be of central importance to our nation. Please protect our global commons and security of future generations by fighting to pass effective anti-global warming legislation following these principles.
