Bleeding Heartland: Pull the plug on the climate change bill

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Few problems require federal action more urgently than global warming.
I admire the members of Congress who have been trying to address this
issue. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman tried
to get the best deal he could. Senator John Kerry has tried to keep
things moving in the upper chamber. Senator Lindsey Graham is getting
tons of grief from fellow Republicans because he admits that climate
change is a problem. I want to support these people and their efforts
to get a bill on the president's desk. Unfortunately, the time has
come to accept that Congress is too influenced by corporate interests
to deal with climate change in any serious way. Pretending to fight
global warming won't solve the problem and may even be
counter-productive.
