A corporate carbon tax

And cap-and-trade. Senator Dodd wants both: "...That's why, in addition to whatever else we do, America must enact a corporate carbon tax. Used in conjunction with cap and trade systems that allow clean corporations to sell pollution credits to dirtier companies..."

What he needs is a new speechwriter: "Parents are alarmed by asthma rates that have increased four fold since 1980 and coastal communities like New Orleans savaged by increasingly extreme weather."

"With the right leadership, the United States will emerge as that leader."
