Comments on Andrew W. Shoyer “US climate change bill – how international provisions work”, 10/07/2009, http://www.eastasiaforum.org/2009/07/10/us-climate-change-bill-how-international-provisions-work/
The US congress is acting as an international bully! The US has dragged international efforts to reduce emissions for many years. Now once it starts to do something, its wants to impose trade sanctions, even though sanctions will not start until 2020.
What a bully it is!
The problem is whether it will have the international influence or not in that regard by then. International economies will change and with them influences. Besides, few other countries will act as the US congress wishes to.
The US congress will need to wake up to world new reality.
