  •  Look at the Dem Senate Caucus... (4+ / 0-)

    There is easily 10+ Dem Senators who are big oil/big coal dependent as is the whole of the GOP- there is simply no realistic way to address climate change, no political will to make it happen in Congress.  Anything done on climate over the next four years will be done around Congress.

      He can talk about those agenda items. EPA regulation being at the top of the list, and that threat can be used to spur Congress into action.

    •  100% true, unfortunately (0+ / 0-)

      You can't blame this on coal state dems, though. There is an entire political party that refuses to acknowledge climate change and will do everything they can to prevent legislative action on the issue. How about all those Republicans who's state industries would be helped by a cap-and-trade bill, and those who don't need oil money to win elections? Where are they on this issue?
