DINGELL-CLIMATE CHANGE
(2007-05-14)
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - Longtime Michigan Congressman John Dingell is
pledging to pass legislation tackling climate change by the end of
next year.
Dingell, a Democrat from Dearborn who chairs the House Energy
and Commerce Committee, says the issue is one of the most difficult
tasks he's faced in Congress. He spoke today at a Detroit Economic
Club luncheon.
Dingell says the legislation would feature an economy-wide
cap-and-trade system for emissions and that coal, petroleum and
nuclear energy would be components.
He also suggested it may be time to move beyond setting
fuel-economy standards for automakers, since cars and trucks make
up only a fraction of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions. He
says he favors spreading the burden more evenly.
