Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's one House Committee. Here's what McClatchy newspapers said about another--Barbara Boxer's environment committee in the Senate:

Automakers and manufacturers, beware: There's a new environmental policy boss in town, she scowls a lot, and two of her favorite phrases are "global warming" and "extensive hearings."

The U.S. political establishment has been in denial about these problems for 6 years, and the media has largely followed their lead. It won't be easy to get this going--and you can hardly expect a congressman from Michigan to say anything else--but what I believe is most important is that we've got powerful places to start.
