ABSTRACT
The article discusses where the political candidates for the 2008 campaign for the U.S. presidency stand on proposed "cap and trade" legislation that would implement a carbon credit exchange system to reduce carbon emissions. The incentive plan could encourage the growth of green businesses and create "green collar" jobs. The reasons why the Lieberman-Warner Bill, which would introduce a cap and trade program, is not receiving more attention from the presidential candidates are discussed.
