Climate & Energy Bill Revealed!

And the ugly politics begin!

As described in the New York Times, Henry Waxman and Ed Markey revealed their climate and energy bill draft.  The bear of a bill sets relatively  aggressive targets for cutting emissions.  It requires a 20% cut from 2005 levels by 2020.  

Some are already calling these early targets too aggressive. Rick Boucher [D-VA], a democrat (or if not him, someone - no question) will try to ease up on the urgency imposed by the bill.  

As the debate unfolds, this will be an extremely hot topic!
