The Mexican Congress made a bold statement this month by approving comprehensive legislation to reduce greenhousegas emissions and take other actions to help the country address global climate change. The ambitious plan—approved 12810 in the Chamber of Deputies and ratified unanimously in the Senate in April—only awaits the signature of President Felipe Calderón. The president has been an outspoken advocate of measures to address climate change, so his signature is virtually guaranteed. With the law's passage, Mexico would become the second nation to enact legally binding emissions restrictions. Great Britain is the only other country to take such a step.
