A post-Copenhagen post from Sarah Laskow at The Media Consortium's The Mulch:
The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen should have cleared a path for the U.S. Congress move forward again on climate change legislation, but Senate Democrats already are saying the bill might not come in 2010. After fights over the stimulus and health care, legislators are less willing to stomach compromises on climate change. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is looking smarter for having passed the House’s version of the climate change bill when she had the chance.It's going to take more than politics-as-normal to move legislators into action. Hard to arouse any New Year optimism about the future of global warming. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.
