McCain's Climate Change Campaign

The debate over climate change has largely been a polarized one on Capitol Hill. Many Democrats and Republicans stand on opposite sides of the fence when it comes to setting standards for controlling emissions, and the Bush administration has been slow to respond to signs of global warming. Senator John McCain is one of a few Republicans who are actively pushing for action on climate change. He co-authored a measure with Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman that would have been the first federal mandate for limiting greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.
It failed to pass the Senate, but the Senator McCain says that, much like his crusade for campaign finance reform, he won't give up on global warming. Living on Earth talks with John McCain about his climate change crusade.
