Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Democratic majority in Congress, and the fact that newly elected Senators and Reps ran on a clean energy program, provides the best opportunity in a generation for building a consensus and taking action on clean energy and other requirements to deal with the Climate Crisis.

The difficulties are a given. But while political cynicism is easy, getting this to work will be hard.  But we have no choice.  It's very likely now or never.  And the U.S. has to be part of the global effort, and still needs to be among the leaders. I see no alternative but hope, and courage.
