Climate Change Bill? Not This Year. Effort Runs Out Of Fuel.

The process of crafting a Climate Change bill has stalled in the Senate. The effort, which was never a high priority within the public consciousness, has fallen victim to its own ambiguous nature. How can you justify destroying whole industries and purposefully killing jobs in a bad economy, for the promise of maybe creating maybe half as many sometime in the future (if you’re lucky) all in the name of fixing a problem that can’t be seen or felt by the general public. Forget the over-hyping of the consensus thing, and the absolutely preposterous exaggerated claim of how Global Warming effects EVERYTHING! People want to see their elected leaders working on stuff that will improve their lives in the here and now, not to try and pass new rules that they know instinctively won’t make a difference now, and won’t even make much of a difference in the future. You can only say “yeah, it won’t do much, but it’s only a first step“, so many times before the general public catches on that it won’t do much. And don’t think that last Tuesday’s elections don’t have an effect. The Democratic caucus is pretty nervous about now.

Ah, the price of over-reach. Can’t wait to see some of the hand-wringing.

And on a related note, Al Gore’s Current TV is laying off 80 employees. I feel bad for the employees, but wonder how much longer CTV can survive. I also give Gore credit for trying something different. That said, is it wrong for me to want to see him fail?
