Legislation by 2008 Presidential Candidates: signing on to UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
Source: S.RES.30/H.CON.RES.104
  • Whereas there is a scientific consensus that the continued buildup of anthropogenic greenhouse gases in the atmosphere threatens the stability of the global climate;
  • Whereas there are significant long-term risks to the economy and the environment of the US from the temperature increases and climatic disruptions that are projected to result from increased greenhouse gas concentrations;
  • Whereas the US has the largest economy in the world and is also the largest emitter of greenhouse gases;
  • Whereas reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the levels necessary to avoid serious climatic disruption requires the introduction of new energy technologies and other climate-friendly technologies;
  • Whereas the development and sale of climate-friendly technologies in the US and internationally present economic opportunities for workers and businesses in the United States;
  • Whereas President Bush, in the State of the Union Address given in January 2006, called on the US to reduce its 'addiction' to oil and focus its attention on developing cleaner, renewable, and sustainable energy sources;
  • Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of the Senate that the United States should act to reduce the health, environmental, economic, and national security risks posed by global climate change and foster sustained economic growth through a new generation of technologies
  • by participating in negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and leading efforts in other international fora,
  • with the objective of securing United States participation in binding agreements that establish mitigation commitments by all countries that are major emitters of greenhouse gases;
  • establish flexible international mechanisms to minimize the cost of efforts by participating countries; and
  • achieve a significant long-term reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions.
