An increasingly discouraged public has waited all year for the President and Congress to take action on Global Warming…net result – nothing!
Governor Brian Schweitzer of Montana summed it up best, "Here's a novel concept for Congress. Do something. Anything. Move."
With wisdom saying that Congress is trying to at least put together some type of energy legislation that might have a chance of getting across the President's desk, it seems that the two separate energy bills that passed in each house of Congress have yet to be successfully merged into a single piece of legislation to ship off to the White House.
It’s understandable that Congress feels bogged down by administration that is determined to squeeze every drop of oil and gas out of the ground before passing serious energy legislation to address global warming. Yet it’s imperative that Congress take action on some level, even if they know full well that a veto is coming.
In response to the snail’s pace with which Congress is moving, Governor's around the country are banding together to address the issue, cajole congressional reps, and call for federal action.
3 Guvs – Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA), Jon Huntsman Jr (R-CA), and Brian Schweitzer (D-MO) all appear in a new TV add that will begin airing soon calling on Congress to take action on the issue of global warming. Lets hope it’s the healthy kick in the pants that Congress needs.
