Public Wants Key Elements Of Climate Change Bill

Polling shows three-quarters of the US population wants strong regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.

That's a consensus, and in the face of concerned industry and rignt-wing talk radio assaults, remarkable.

Which means Democrats need to show backbone to get this bill through the Congress.

The bill has passed the House.

Call your US Senator.

Herb Kohl: 1-202-224-5653.

Russ Feingold: 1-202-224-5323.

And while you're on the phone, as Kohl and Feingold to oppose the huge subsidies the nuclear power industry is trying to get added to the bill.

Available renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies are faster, cheaper, safer and cleaner strategies for reducing greenhouse emissions than nuclear power.

The idea that we must choose between coal and nuclear is simply false.
