What do CEO Bill Ford of Ford Motor, CEO Jim Rogers of Duke Energy and CEO Bruce Usher of carbon trader EcoSecurities have in common? A deep aversion to unpredictability.

And it's why Usher needs a cap and trade bill from Congress--to jump-start carbon trading in the U.S. and catalyze big investments in green technologies. Before it's too late.
