One year later...

One year and a few days since my last post. My how things have changed.

A decent climate-energy bill passed the house but never got a vote in the Senate.

I believe a new Congress means all un-acted on bills have to be re-passed. No way a good climate bill gets passed in the House now. That means 2013 before there's any significant action in Congress. Of course, there's that new EPA authority to regulate CO2 that could be used by the Obama administration. But will they?

I think that it is important to advocate climate legislation not only to liberals, but also to conservatives. The shift will not be immediate, but conserving natural resources and conserving the environment should be conservative values. -Reed Aronow, SustainUS U.S. Youth Delegate to COP16

I wholeheartedly agree that it's important to persuade conservatives that climate change is not a myth, as so many of them seem to believe. With a clever spin the environment can definitely be turned into a conservative issue
