Here's what the government has to say about this bill...

To create clean energy jobs, achieve energy independence, reduce global warming pollution and transition to a clean energy economy.
current 111st session of congress
Open Congress Summary:
This is the Waxman-Markley comprehensive energy bill, known for short as "ACES," that includes a cap-and-trade global warming reduction plan designed to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions 17 percent by 2020. Other provisions include new renewable requirements for utilities, studies and incentives regarding new carbon capture and sequestration technologies, energy efficiency incentives for homes and buildings, and grants for green jobs, among other things.
The House Energy and Commerce Committee began markup of the bill on May 18th and it will likely be on the full House floor in June. It is expected to be significantly weakened during the legislative process by Republicans and conservative Democrats in both the Senate and the House.

Summary of Bill / Entire Text
Personally I am against any bill that is obviously a scam on the American People. This only benefits big business and hardly, I say hardly passes as a bill to protect the planet.
Wanna protect the planet Congress? Go off yourselves... world is better without you these days.
