Revving the Climate Policy Engine

Over at DeSmogBlog, I take a look at the events of this week and how they point to strong and dramatic action on global warming and energy early next year. In particular, it now appears that Barack Obama, Barbara Boxer, and Henry Waxman will be our triumvirate of policymakers who finally cap greenhouse gas emissions.

I think you're smoking something if you really believe that meaningful action on climate change will take place anytime soon--or in a way that will truly be effective--ever. For all the hue and cry, handwringing, and doomsaying, nothing is going to happen of any consequence, sorry to say. Go ahead, disagree. Protest all you want--it will make no difference. In the meantime I will watch my TV run on coal, put fossil fuel my car, fly an airplane to a vacation destination, use natural gas to heat my house, and eat food grown by hydrocarbons and transported a thousand miles or more to my Whole Foods--until I can't. You will too, until you can't.
