Obama and Climate Change Legislation: Call and Response

Yesterday, my colleague Shari Shapiro, posted a blog piece entitled "Getting to Yes". She argued that the current energy/climate change legislation being backed by the Obama administration should be scrapped because it is both weak and toothless. I agree that the proposed bill does not offer anything resembling a comprehensive approach to climate change mitigation. Nevertheless, I believe that congressional dithering has gone on long enough and we must get something-- even a paper tiger-- on the books ASAP.

Check out Shari's position here.

And then see my response.

What do you think?
