    Legislation that is being debated right now to ‘cap and trade’ carbon emissions could do much to help the environment by putting a ceiling on the amount of carbon emissions that a nation can have. It will be important to pass legislation and incentives that promote green innovation as well. Also, it will be important to end the subsidy on corn to make it wiser to produce other types of food because so much of our diet is currently corn. Many people have opposition to any legislation in a free market but there are so many problems right now that legislation may be one of the only resolutions.
