US coalition calls for action on climate

A coalition of 31 major corporations and environmental groups is presenting a blueprint to a U.S.House of Representativesx committee for combatting climate change.
The group calls for aggressive reductions of greenhouse gases "that can be achieved at manageable costs to the economy."
The proposal from the U.S. Climate Action Partnership is likely to be a key focus as Congress debates climate legislation in the coming months. It calls for an emissions cap-and-trade program that would result in an 80 percent reduction in greenhouse gases with about half of that to be achieved by 2030.
The coalition includes 26 major corporations, including some of the countries biggest electric utilities and oil companies, and five environmental organizations.
