While it doesn’t actually call for the implementation of these policies, this bill lays out a path forward for Congress to act on climate change. It acknowledges both the needs of the U.S. economy and the need for current generations to be responsible stewards of the environment.
First of all, this resolution doesn’t offer any specific policies to address the problem, so it’s pretty much meaningless. But it also makes numerous assumptions about the causes and effects of climate change, and doesn’t adequately weigh the cost to the economy of taking action.
