Here it is in Black and white:

Cap and trade is the most environmentally and economically sensible approach to controlling greenhouse gas emissions, the primary driver of global warming.

The "cap" sets a limit on emissions, which is lowered over time to reduce the amount of pollutants released into the atmosphere.

The "trade" creates a market for carbon allowances, helping companies innovate in order to meet, or come in under, their allocated limit. The less they emit, the less they pay, so it is in their economic incentive to pollute less.

What ever needs to be done just do it! JUST DO SOMETHING....:)

It would be a start, but more needs to be done.
