The United States, historically the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, remains the ONLY industrialized country in the world that refuses to agree to reduce its emissions—and there remains no foreseeable action by the U.S. Congress.

The key is to create a short, simple and effective proposal—accompanied by a separate document stating the specific intentions of the drafters—that effectively addresses the issue.
