Restarting the Climate Change Discussion

First Read: "So here we are again, another attempt to simply 'start' the conversation. Yes, the president will announce some executive actions, but to do what he really wants he needs some legislative action, and this Congress is just not going to prioritize anything having to do with climate. Already, Republicans seem to be licking their political chops, labeling every proposal that's been previewed today as some form of an increase in cost for energy that's being passed on to the consumer. Opponents have successfully stopped previous climate-change policy efforts by simply turning the issue into a pocketbook issue by labeling it as an energy tax or a rate hike on average Americans' power bills. And there's no reason to think this same tactic won't work again."
