Chairman Jeff Bingaman
On U.N. Report on Global Warming
Feb. 2, 2007
 
“This U.N. report is only the latest in a series of signals that increase the urgency of our efforts to deal with global warming.  Today I am again urging the President to show leadership and work with Congress to implement a mandatory, market-based cap and trade program to address this challenge. Sen. Specter and I are committed to the process we have laid out to develop bipartisan consensus on legislation that Congress can pass this year.  The consequences so clearly spelled out in this report, and many others, compel us to act now.”
