Senator Kerry supports both the McCain-Lieberman bill (to cap overall U.S. emissions in 2010 no higher than the overall levels back in 2000); as well as a bill he and Senator John McCain submiited to raise average fuel economy of vehicles sold in the U.S. from 24 mpg to 36 mpg by 2015; and the Kyoto Treaty. President Bush on the other hand prefers to make pollution and fuel economy measures voluntary, and removed references to climate change from a 2002 Environmental Protection Act report on air pollution.
