ABSTRACT
The article examines the potential developments in the issue of climate change in the U.S. in 2008. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cited its intention to seek extended public comments before responding to a Supreme Court decision directing it to regulate carbon emissions. A legislation that would require U.S. greenhouse-gas emission reductions of about 25% will be decided by the Senate in June. Former Vice President Al Gore noted that domestic action on the issue is more likely if accompanied by international progress.
