Watching sausage being made

US CO2 goals ‘to be compromised’:
[Via BBC News | Science/Nature | World Edition]

Energy Secretary Steven Chu says the US will not be able to cut emissions as much as needed due to domestic opposition.


Otto van Bismarck does not get quoted very often but this is a classic:

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made.

Of course, the problem is that a constant news bombardment from everywhere creates a sausage=making feast. I guess the openness and transparency this all engenders is a good thing but knowing that the politicians will not make the changes that are needed is very frustrating.

I really think they will not make the leap until it is really too late. I guess wearing shorts and Hawaiian shirts due to the heat will be something to look forward to.
