Via Kate @ SDA:
Quote:
Conceding that they can't find enough votes for the legislation, Senate Democrats on Thursday abandoned efforts to put together a comprehensive energy bill that would seek to curb greenhouse gas emissions, delivering a potentially fatal blow to a proposal the party has long touted and President Obama campaigned on...

...Democrats have not ruled out pushing for a more extensive measure when Congress returns from its August recess or in the session after the November midterm elections, although it's not clear that any of the Democrats or Republicans who now oppose a more expansive measure would change their minds.

LINK. Of course, the Democrats will almost certainly lose their current 'super majority' in the Senate, and many newly elected Senators will be seated immediately. Which means that Cap and Trade is more or less dead in the water, on both sides of the border.

Following Obama's lead was perhaps the smartest and most pro-active yet looking positive in the public eye route to destroy Cap & Trade.

It amazes me how people can even support a scam like this. This was something environmentalists were really worried about in the 90s, no? Carbon credits and big businesses?
