An already tough climb to pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation in the Senate just got a bit tougher with Republican Scott Brown's upset victory yesterday in Massachusetts. Sen.-Elect Brown's Win Adds More Question Marks to Senate Climate Debate - NYTimes.com This legislation which was already in trouble in the first place it appears with this election will have even more problems passing. So much like the healthcare bill, that will leave other options to pass it or Administrative options to do so. While I do think the nation needs to finally address its energy issues once and for all this bill is not a way to go about it and should it pass with other than traditional methods given the recent results in MA. there is a good posibility that other states are likely to follow suit.
