Urge Harry Reid to back a good carbon cap on utilities

UPDATE 7/22/10: Please be advised that Harry Reid has abandoned the effort to include ANY climate legislation in the Spill Bill. You may wish to send the letter anyway, but keep that in mind.

Original post: Senate Democrats are still discussing what should go into a catch-all bill on the oil spill, energy, and climate change. One proposal that might make it into the final bill is a carbon emissions cap on utilities. Now powerful utility companies, who contribute large sums to federal campaigns, are demanding to be exempted from existing Clean Air Act regulations on other harmful and toxic emissions, in exchange for supporting a weak carbon cap. Tell Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to push as hard as possible for a stronger cap on carbon emissions and to oppose trading our air quality for climate progress.
