Daily Roundup: February 11, 2010

Bipartisan Push: A bipartisan group of senators has introduced a bill to require sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxide, and mercury to be significantly reduced through a cap-and trade system. The bill offers a way to bypass the climate-change debate by framing it as a public-health issue. ScrippsNews

Natural Cleaning: The Natural Products Association is releasing new guidelines for natural home-care products; until now, there was no uniform standard. Products that qualify will display the association’s seal. Wall Street Journal

A Coal-Free Northwest: The Northwest Power and Conservation Council has adopted an energy plan that avoids new coal-fired plants for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana through 2030. The Seattle Times

Sustainable Millionaire: A new game show in India will reward villages for sustainability projects. One that has switched to organic farming and another that converts degradable waste into biofuel are among the contestants. CNN
