Climate Bill Set Aside: What's Next for US Energy Policy?

Hosted by

After a series of stunning victories on economic stimulus, healthcare, finance reform and unemployment insurance, President Obama suffered a major setback yesterday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid declared that the climate-change bill is dead, at least for now. Months ago, the House passed a comprehensive bill to charge corporate polluters for releasing carbon dioxide, but even a pared-down version failed to attract enough votes in the Senate. Jesse Jenkins is Director of Energy and Climate Policy at the Breakthrough Institute.
