Reasons for Hope on Cap-and-Trade?
I'm pretty pessimistic on the chances for cap-and-trade to pass the Senate anytime soon, but David Roberts offers seven arguments for optimism, and they're more convincing than I'd have originally thought. The first one is the biggest one: the steadfast presence of Senate Republicans might make this possible. But if they abandon the plan, it's likely dead. Which leaves us with an interesting unknown: How many Senate Republicans are privately convinced of the dangers posed by global warming?
