Unfit to Command: Bobo on the Environment

I am not a tree hugger or an earth biscuit, but clearly this Administration is weak on a beneath-the-surface issue. Just saw Bobby Kennedy, Jr on Hardball hawking his book with a hard line for Bobo's environmental appointees. Here's a sample from the article, a somewhat engaging read given the subject:

BW Online | Global Warming: "carbon-constrained"

Consensus is growing among scientists, governments, and business that they must act fast to combat climate change. This has already sparked efforts to limit CO2 emissions. Many companies are now preparing for a carbon-constrained world.

The idea that the human species could alter something as huge and complex as the earth's climate was once the subject of an esoteric scientific debate. But now even attorneys general more used to battling corporate malfeasance are taking up the cause. On July 21, New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and lawyers from seven other states sued the nation's largest utility companies, demanding that they reduce emissions of the gases thought to be warming the earth. Warns Spitzer: "Global warming threatens our health, our economy, our natural resources, and our children's future. It is clear we must act."

Who will lead? Certainly not the right -- they are more concerned with gays getting hitched and preserving human forms of life, except unless they need to get executed, whether they are mentally retarded or not.
