What happened to the climate bill in the Senate?



  1. 0 Votes

    A number of things went wrong for the climate bill in the Senate this year. Though it could have passed, there were conflicting interests in climate and economic issues. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said some were paid by big oil companies to oppose the bill, and the recession made more people concerned for the economy. Studies were presented showing that pollution reductions would harm the economy, but the studies were faulty. They were also funded by oil companies with conflicting interests. However, links between environmental legislation and unemployment rates became the largest hurdle to passing the bill whether the studies were true or false.
