Pew's Roy, PG&E's Lavinson discuss U.S. Climate Action Partnership emissions plan

Earlier this month, the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, a coalition of industry and environmental groups pushing for the enactment of emissions-reduction legislation, released a blueprint cap-and-trade proposal. During today's OnPoint, Manik Roy, vice president of federal government outreach at the Pew Center on Global Climate Change, and Melissa Lavinson, senior director of federal affairs at PG&E, explain why this proposal satisfies the goals of each of their organizations. They also address criticism that the plan's early targets are too low and that the proposal allows for too many offsets.
