CEOs At Energy Summit Want Guidance From Washington On Carbon
Guess what, guys? You aren't going to get it!

NEW YORK - Some US energy executives say Washington is merely paying lip service to growing public pressure to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Instead of railing against regulations that would ultimately add to energy costs, power and gas company executives attending the Reuters Energy Summit in New York this week called for uniform national policies, rather than a state-by-state patchwork of measures. In addition, they said, the US government should earmark any money generated by new taxes or trading schemes for developing technological solutions for reducing and trapping carbon dioxide and other gases blamed for global warming.

"The biggest thing lacking on the carbon issue right now is federal leadership," said Bruce Williamson, chief executive of independent power generator Dynegy Inc.

"What there tends to be is comments or proposals made, or sound bites that are made" rather than work toward bipartisan solutions, Williamson said.

1. Instead of getting guidance they could be taking the lead.
But that would make too much sense.
