Congressional inaction and climate change, October 11


Comprehensive U.S. climate legislation passed the House of Representatives in June 2009 but has stalled in the Senate.  What does this mean for U.S. companies, for EPA, for the states, and for the international negotiations?  On Monday, October 11 from 7-9 PM, check out this discussion on how the US and the states will move forward given Congressional paralysis.
