US senators push climate action

Leading senators back calls for legislation to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

    Three leading US senators have joined calls for the US Congress to act and legislate to curb the effects of climate change.

    Their remarks come as European leaders appeal to Washington to speed up action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

    But at the same time Republicans in Congress are already blocking early attempts to frame legislation.
