Green Politics: Obama Promises Climate Action

President Obama promised Climate Change action.

Thank you, Mr. President.

We’re behind you.

Before the conversation speeds up any more, here are some links that I didn’t want to get lost in the shuffle:

*Why did climate change cap-and-trade legislation fail in 2010? Harvard Professor Theda Skocpol dishes out buckets of blame in this much-Tweeted Washington Post interview.

*On this same topic, Professor Skocpol’s 140-page report on this issue is a lengthy and worthwhile read.

*The Yale Project on Climate Change Communication offers thoughts on why a pro-climate position might offer political benefits.

*, Sierra Club and the Hip Hop Caucus are organizing the Feb. 17 Forward on Climate rally in Washington, DC and other U.S. cities.

As President Obama said:

The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But American cannot resist this transition. We must lead it.
