Senators John Kerry and Lindsey Graham took to the pages of The New York Times on Sunday to declare that the Senate is on "a road to 60 votes" on the upcoming climate-change bill. Saying the climate change is a challenge to America's economy and security, the senators—one Democrat and the other Republican—advocated for lowering carbon emissions. They called for investing in alternative energies and lowering our dependence on foreign oil. The bipartisan message of optimism came with a threat: Failure to pass a bill will lead to Environmental Protection Agency regulations that will be tougher than many senators who oppose the current legislation would wish to see. Their message is simple: Get in line or suffer the consequences.
