The article focuses on whether the decision made by Colorado Governor Bill Ritter to refuse from joining the Western Climate Initiative's market-based cap-and-trade mechanism for reducing carbon dioxide and greenhouse emission is essential for the state. It says that the Ritter administration is only observing the Western Climate Initiative deliberations because it expects such initiative to be superseded by federal action. It also offers information on how the said initiative was formed.
