Is the Waxman-Markey bill strong enough to make real progress in battling climate change?

    The most simple and saddest answer is no. Climate change is a global dilemma, and international cooperation is a must. It is, however, a step in the right direction for the United States. The bill proposes a cap and trade plan for greenhouse gasses which can utilize the forces of a free market system to reduce carbon emissions while encouraging advancement in cleaner technologies. Most of the demands of the bill are meant to be met by 2020.  One can also make the argument that if the United States can become a leader in the battle against climate change, instead of its driving force, there will be much more political pressure on other major carbon emitters such as China and India to join in on a solution.
