In Obama’s Team, Two Camps on Climate -

In Obama’s Team, Two Camps on Climate - Given the delicate state of the economy, I am leaning towards Lawrence Summer's approach to slowing climate change via a cap and trade policy that introduced in phases over the next few years. While I agree that we need to take swift, aggressive steps to reduce carbon emissions, I know that sometimes when the government is involved in a program, the bureaucracy can be frustrating and stifling. Small businesses can ill afford additional roadblocks to success. If the Obama administration can duplicate its campaign success and put together a fair and efficiently operating cap and trade program, then I support moving as quickly as we can to reduce our carbon emissions to below 1990 levels.
