Live Webcast September 30, 1 PM EST / 10 AM PST
Key U.S. CEOs and world leaders are urging the Obama Administration not to go empty-handed to the UNFCCC Conference in Copenhagen this December. All eyes are on the President, who will address the UN on climate change in New York on September 22 while the Senate considers climate legislation back in DC. But with the President's focus on passing health care legislation, the climate bill awaiting action in the Senate risks being "back-burnered."
Todd Stern, the U.S. State Department lead negotiator, and other key leaders are urging Congress to act. How critical is it that the U.S. climate negotiators have a bill this year? Would a strong bilateral China-U.S. agreement before December be sufficient instead? In the Senate, what type of climate and energy bill has the greatest likelihood of passage, and how will it differ from the House version? Do you agree with TEC blogger Joe Romm of climateprogress.org that there could be a "better" climate bill next year?
The Energy Collective and several of its members presented a live interactive panel discussion on September 30, at 1 pm Eastern, exploring these issues and answering questions about the current legislation.
Mike Zimmer participated as a panelist.
