DAILY HERALD [Editorial]: Consider climate bill despite costs

"The idea [of climate legislation], of course, is we'll avoid polluting, use better energy sources, be better stewards to avoid the higher cost.

Opponents worry that means costs will rise. Supporters admit that's the case. But they say we'll use less energy, meaning the bottom line will be lower. They also note that the bill includes a number of cost containment measures to limit the impact.

Taking this action to improve our environment will cost, no question. But inaction will undoubtedly cost far more."
