The “energy-only” bill and Byron Dorgan’s deficit hypocrisy 4.3.2010 Grist Magazine
Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) is fiscally responsible, a “deficit hawk” as they say in the biz, and like most people who self-identify with that label in Washington, he’s very keen for everyone to know it.  Back in September 2009, he urged President Obama to focus on reducing the deficit —indeed, said it should be the Dems’ top priority : The budget deficits are unsustainable, and the top priority for the President and the Congress must be to develop a strategy that will step us back from the increased federal debt that could undermine our economic future. Top priority. Got it. Fast forward to 2010. Right now, the Senate is getting ready to grapple with a climate/energy bill. There are two broad options on ...

Finding the American Dream - in China 3.3.2010 Truthout.com

US Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke and Energy Secretary Steven Chu returned from China last July with a sober understanding of the degree to which China had advanced in green technology. Sino-US clean energy cooperation reached a milestone later in 2009, when the two presidents signed various bilateral agreements, including the establishment of the US- China Clean Energy Research Centre in Beijing to improve research and development in the field. But clean energy was caught in the political firestorm of the health care debacle.

Bill Gates and our innovation addiction: A recipe for climate inaction 3.3.2010 Gristmill
Bill Gates’ recent entry into the discussion about climate action and technology is welcome. Not only is Gates a very smart guy and one of the world’s leading philanthropists, but he also has at least the reputation of knowing what he is talking about when it comes to technology and innovation. That being said, his opening moves in this discussion—his speech at the TED conference and a post on his blog —are not beyond criticism. Though by no means his intention, Gates is encouraging a peculiar type of 21st century passivity by government officials, investors, and activists that has a high probability of leading to climate inaction. The “more innovation” meme repeated by Gates has limits that ...

Lindsey Graham’s dilemma, part two: Trying to deal a winning hand without ACES 3.3.2010 Gristmill
As we saw yesterday , Sen. Lindsey Graham is in a pickle. He wants a climate bill. He wants to put a price on carbon. He wants to bring diverse constituencies to the table. He wants to craft something the public can support. But he can’t use the bill that already did all that stuff! The American Clean Energy & Security Act (ACES) and “cap-and-trade” have (for reasons only tenuously related to their contents) been irrevocably tarnished. There’s no way they’ll get to 60 votes in the Senate. So Graham, Joe Lieberman, and John Kerry have to come up with something else. They are in effect trying to build a house without using the only tools and techniques that have ever successfully been used to build one. Can ...
