Several members of Congress are considering a different version of Cap & Trade.
Basically, any money collected from companies with emissions over the set Cap would be returned to the taxpayers to cover the increased costs of energy. The figure being quoted at the moment is $1000 per year per person.
And of course, there's still the incentive for companies to get off Fosil Fuels.
I'm not sure it's any better, but if it has a better chance of passing, I'm for it!
