ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the proposed Lieberman-Warner cap-and-trade bill, the climate change legislation, aiming to cut overall 2050 emissions by 63% in the U.S. The U.S. Congress is expected to renew consideration of the bill, which would impose mandatory limits and then reductions of emissions of six greenhouse gases (GHGs) by four main economic or energy sectors: manufacturing, transportation, power generation and natural gas processing.
