Greenpeace Wants None Of It

More

Some late news on the Waxman-Markey climate change legislation: Greenpeace, the influential activist environmental group, contends that industry lobbyists watered down the bill to the point where it won't do much of anything. The bill, they contend, would create a "whole new generation" of coal and nuclear plants and would not limit emissions in the volume they say current science required. Greenpeace's announcement won't do much to the vote count because most fellow travelers have already decided to oppose the bill for the same reasons, but it has become a news story, and that may influence the mood of the majority... and the mood of the majority may well influence the votes of individuals.
