I want to give everyone a change to view this report from California Green, Mike Feinstein. He is in Bali for the UN Framework Negotiaion on Climate Change. This is not what I am hearing regarding the meetings after it is filtered by some mainstream media producer.
At the same time, we need to be prepared to absorb a wave of triumphal press releases from a Congress that has just passed (86-8) a seriously flawed energy bill, one that we will pay for in the grocery store as well as at the gas pump. You know that any bill which gathers such a sizable margin on such an important issue is the product of significant compromise in search of election year votes.
Taken together, this is one more reason to that we need our Green Party candidates speaking out. Abject failure of a Republican presidency and an Democratic Congress and why are we not saying more?
