Today President Obama has shown he is willing to use the
powers granted under existing law to accelerate efforts to contain
dangerous carbon pollution.
By focusing on the remedies under the
Clean Air Act, the potential of using government lands to develop
clean energy, and continuing efforts on fuel economy and energy
efficiency, the President is using all of the tools in his toolbox, and I
applaud him for that.
The President�s commitment today to only
approve the tar sands pipeline if there is no net increase in carbon
pollution is promising, but tar sands are one of the dirtiest fuels on
the planet and the devil is in the details. We also need a
price on carbon pollution, and I intend to work with my colleagues on this
issue as part of a comprehensive plan to address climate
