Historic Vote on Global Warming Bill Reflects Building Momentum to Limit Carbon Dioxide
Washington DC - WASHINGTON ? "Today's strong bi-partisan vote shatters the myth that the US Senate will never seriously consider action to address the environmental problem of global warming.
"This is remarkable support for the first-ever vote on limiting global warming pollution. Today's votes in support of the McCain-Lieberman bill were votes to protect American communities and the wild places we love from the impacts of global warming. Senator McCain (R-AZ) vowed to keep bringing the issue back before the US Senate until it takes a responsible approach to global warming, reflecting the tenacity he's demonstrated on important issues in the past. More needs to be done to implement solutions and World Wildlife Fund will continue to work towards this goal, but this bill represented a long-awaited step in the right direction.
