The Scouting Report: Can the World Stop Global Warming?

President Barack Obama has made energy and climate policy top priorities for his administration as expectations for U.S. leadership in ongoing international climate negotiations run high. As the Senate moves to consider the narrowly passed House climate and energy measure, the economic effects of the cap-and-trade legislation remain in dispute and could be a significant hurdle to passage.

Brookings Managing Director William Antholis who served at the National Security Council during the Kyoto Protocol negotiations, and Fred Barbash, senior editor of Politico, took questions on the domestic and international implications of climate change and the outlook for international cooperation on addressing global warming in this edition of the Scouting Report.
