  • Abstract: After eight years of non-engagement, the new administration and the U.S. Congress, led by a majority in the President's party, are rapidly developing climate policy legislation. This paper summarizes past efforts to establish a national climate policy in the United States as well as the major forces influencing the current debate.

Whether the United States is willing to take strong action will significantly influence the actions of other nations.
