The article presents information on the efforts of the U.S. to reduce greenhouse gas emissions within a national, if not global, framework. Supporters of emission reduction laws have gained ground recently, as several states have passed their own laws to reduce emissions in the past few years. The current reigning proposal--America's Climate Security Act (S 2191)--would follow in the footsteps of the Kyoto Protocol by capping emissions at the level of 1990 by 2015.
