The author reflects on the need for the U.S. Congress to develop a comprehensive climate policy. He emphasizes that the best way to start the policy is to ensure that the energy policy has been put in place. Legislators have been tasked to ensure that the policy works and solves issues concerning climate change. Recently, the House and Senate have passed separate energy legislation.
