ABSTRACT
The article presents information on bills related to climate change in the U.S. All five of the climate change bills whirling about in the U.S. Senate would set market-based mandatory caps on emissions of all six greenhouse gases and dedicate dollars for research into low- and no-carbon energy sources. Each bill is designed to make renewables such as solar, wind and biofuels more appealing by raising the cost of combusting fossil fuels.
