The article reports that proponents of the Climate Security Act sponsored by senators Joseph Lieberman (I., CT) and John Warner (R., VA) failed to garner enough votes to halt debate on the bill, effectively killing its prospects for passing the U.S. Senate before President George W. Bush's term expires. The bill would have established a cap-and-trade program to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions 20 percent by 2020, and nearly 70 percent by 2050.
