    My wife works with the GAO a lot and she sent this report over to me. They report on just how difficult it will be to regulate the amount of CO2 being released.

    Of course it will be difficult. The energy companies are putting many, many tens of millions of dollars into preventing anything at all from being done.

    But we will probably start doing it well after it will make no differance. Our grandchildren will curse the blindness and greed of this generation.

    Are there any other parties that could be added to the list, such as agriculture and manufacturing?
