Yes We Can (Pass Climate Change Legislation)

John Kerry, Democratic senator of Massachusetts, and Lindsay Graham, Republican senator of South Carolina and staunch ally of John McCain, join forces in this op-ed contribution to the New York Times:

... we refuse to accept the argument that the United States cannot lead the world in addressing global climate change. We are also convinced that we have found both a framework for climate legislation to pass Congress and the blueprint for a clean-energy future that will revitalize our economy, protect current jobs and create new ones, safeguard our national security and reduce pollution.

Our partnership represents a fresh attempt to find consensus that adheres to our core principles and leads to both a climate change solution and energy independence. It begins now, not months from now — with a road to 60 votes in the Senate.
