US climate bill – uncertain timing

Major climate change legislation may not go through the US Congress before 2010, the White House signalled on 23 February.

 

When asked when President Barack Obama wished to see movement on a climate bill, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs left the time frame wide open, according to a Reuters report: “If we had significant legislation that began to address climate change ... whether that's this year or next year I think both of us would agree that that's a big change that we would welcome.”
 
Gibbs was reported as saying that the bill would have to allow the USA to spend even more money investing in alternative energy to avoid adding further to the amount of greenhouse gasses (GHGs).
