Environmentalists Against Cap And Trade

by Patrick Appel

Ryan Avent is befuddled:

Greenpeace is not alone among environmentalist groups opposing (or preparing to oppose) [the Waxman-Markey bill]. There’s no denying that the bill is very imperfect, and inadequate, but what does Greenpeace think is going to happen here?

What unnecessary concessions did Waxman make on this bill? Which Senators are going to magically change their mind on this issue when Obama and congressional leaders bring them into a room and say, “Come on now, guys, get serious.” I read this press release, and this is what I see:

Phase 1: Oppose best hope for climate legislation

Phase 2: ???????

Phase 3: Pass perfect climate bill!
