    think Americans want to play catch-up on Kyoto, and realize we are adding more than our fair share of greenhouse gases.

    My problem is a practical, political one:  Democratic leaders have committed to no higher taxation of the middle class in the short term.  They won't do it, not until they have consolidated power in 2008.

    What can we do now, very soon, without raising taxes -- without setting up a bill that will break a no-tax pledge, and end up being vetoed anyway?
