The article reports that Democratic Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts and Independent Senator Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut introduced a climate bill that includes a cap-and-trade system for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The bill aims to reduce GHG emissions to 83 percent of 2005 levels by 2020 and 17 percent of 2005 levels by 2050. However, various issues surround the bill, including the decision of Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina to withdrew her support on the bill, and the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
