The End of the Inhofe Era

THE END OF THE INHOFE ERA….I was going to link to this post from Grist’s David Roberts (recommended by Bob Somerby), but when I got back from lunch I had an email from David asking me to link to two other posts of his. The first one is about the state of play of climate legislation in the Senate (now that climate wingnut extraordinaire James Inhofe is no longer in charge of the Environment and Public Works Committee) and the second one is about the state of play of climate legislation in the House. If you’re interested in climate legislation — and you should be — read them both. They’re short and informative.

Actually, read all three posts. I may come back to the first one later.
