Quote:

    “The climate change bill is a vital starting point to begin to control climate change.  Many scientific panels have said that allowing temperatures to rise more than two degrees above pre-industrial levels could trigger dangerous consequences from climate change.  The world still would need big emission cuts elsewhere — namely from more-efficient cars, appliances and buildings — to slash emissions as deeply as many scientists are calling for.”
