McCain goes green in West Coast speech

John McCain called Monday for reductions in carbon emissions and slammed the Bush administration for failing to lead the fight against climate change. McCain's proposal of reducing carbon emissions to 60 percent below 1990 levels by 2050 is less than Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's call for levels 80 percent below 1990. Still, he got some praise from conservationists.
