Even after heroic efforts by Sen. Boxer and leading environmental
groups to produce a serious global warming bill, it is time to
recognize that the current legislation, sponsored by independent Sen.
Lieberman of Connecticut and Republican Sen. Warner of Virginia, does
not meet any serious test. Not only that, unless dramatically
improved, the legislation provides massive giveaways to the worst
polluters while guaranteeing that greenhouse gases will be reduced
less than the scientific consensus requires.
Tell your senators: Fix or ditch the global warming bill.
Not surprisingly, insider politics have taken over the global warming
debate in the Senate. Progress is now being defined as how many votes
the legislation can muster, rather than the cost of the deals made to
get each vote. Real progress on global warming is no longer the goal.
Now the goal is simply votes without progress. For example, Sen.
Lieberman is trying to entice John McCain to support the legislation
with even more billions for nuclear power. And senators from states
that rely heavily on coal burning industries want special bonuses so
that they won’t be penalized for polluting choices of the past.

The dollar cost of compromise is simply too high—literally hundreds
of billions of dollars.

The American people need to know which senators want real action on
global warming. We hope that the Senate will vote on an amendment to
Lieberman—Warner that adopts the scientific standard of 80% reduction
without massive handouts to polluters.

If such an amendment fails, it is time to ditch Lieberman-Warner. We
can do better.

Tell your senators to fix or ditch this bill.

So please sign the petition by clicking the links above. And then be
sure to tell your friends who are concerned about how we’re going to
address the climate crisis.

Sincerely,

Michael Kieschnick
