Abstract: Examines whether US legislation involving trade-related climate protection is compatible with World Trade Organisation (WTO) laws. Reviews key features of the draft American Clean Energy and Security Act and the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Bill 2008 and reflects on the likely outcome if their trade measures are challenged before the WTO, including the extent to which the 2008 Bill meets the requirements of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 art.XX. Considers other options for developed nations if their legislation is challenged successfully at the WTO
