CAP's Weiss discusses energy, climate proposals in fiscal 2011 spending plan

Earlier this week, President Obama released his fiscal 2011 budget proposal. It is a blueprint for Congress, with many assumptions built into it, including a cap-and-trade system. During today's OnPoint, Daniel Weiss, a senior fellow and the director of climate strategy at the Center for American Progress, discusses the president's energy and climate recommendations. He explains why he believes nuclear power plant funding should not be included in the final budget and discusses how the proposed budget will affect the oil and gas industries.
