Waxman Introduces Safe Climate Act

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) plans to introduced the Safe Climate Act in the House. The legislation aims to reduce greenhouse emissions by 2% through 2020, and 5% afterwards through 2050.

The bill will unlikely become law, as the current congress and president have welcomed reactionary environmental policies with open arms.

Nevertheless, as Matt Stoler, at MyDD explains, "if any legislator signs onto this or introduces it in the Senate, people will begin to believe that the Democratic Party is ready to govern again."
