U.S.-Canadian Economic Ties Weigh In to Climate Change Debate
As part of a continuing series of conversations about climate change legislation, Judy Woodruff recently talked with Brad Wall, premier of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Wall argues that because the U.S. and American economies are "so inextricably linked, we need to move forward together" in tackling climate change.
Wall also discusses the downside of cap-and-trade legislation, approaches to sustainability and Canadian attitudes toward climate change.
As part of this series, we've also talked to Peter Molinaro, federal and state government affairs for the Dow Chemical Company, and Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, the ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, about climate change.
