Congress Debates Cap and Trade

Hosted by

A sweeping bill on climate change – one that would cut greenhouse gas emissions by two-thirds by 2050 -- is being debated in the US Senate this week. But opponents are focusing on the economic costs of the bill. In the meantime, the debate is drawing scores of lobbyists, representing everyone from Alaskan Indians to venture capitalists. New York Times correspondent John Broder has been covering the hearings.
