I get letters, I’m not sure how I ended up on this list. Looks like Harry Reid and John Kerry have some competition for a “Climate bill”. It seems like the public can attend, see how to register below. A video follows.

Controlling Greenhouse Gases: The CLEAR Act Option
With Remarks by Senators Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and Susan M. Collins (R-Maine)
Thursday, July 29, 2010, 2:00–3:30 p.m.
G11 Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20002
Senator Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), the chair of the Senate Subcommittee on Energy, and Senator Susan M. Collins (R-Maine) will explain their proposed approach to control greenhouse gases: the admirably concise, 39-page Carbon Limits and Energy for America’s Renewal (CLEAR) Act. This act follows the House’s passage of the 1,428-page* Waxman-Markey American Clean Energy and Security Act and the introduction in the Senate of the 987-page* Kerry-Lieberman Clean Energy Jobs and American Power Act, both of which would strictly control greenhouse gas emissions via cap-and-trade. Alan D. Viard and Kenneth P. Green, resident scholars at AEI, will comment briefly after the senators’ remarks.
