The future of our planet is in our hands. It is now determined that human activity has caused climate change on planet earth.

By examining the bill through a liberal and an institutional perspective, the purpose of this essay is to identify what is influencing the climate debate on a federal level in the U.S. Three different dimensions will be taken under consideration while doing the analysis, responsibility, market and economics and for the last part institutions. The two perspectives will demonstrate their own view on each dimension. Doing this shows that institutions is of great importance when a country need to change its society, but also that liberal and institutional ideas affects and complements each
other. Solving the climate change problem is a very difficult task that twists and turns usual political solutions. (Less)
