What a complete mind-blow it was to hear President Bush say the phrase “climate change” without preceding it with “there is no such thing as”? And then to hear him urge higher fuel standards, energy efficiency, and alternative energy? And then to see the vast majority of Congress standing up and applauding in agreement?

Wow.

Yeah, there’s still no such thing as ‘clean coal,’ and the more I read about ethanol the more I think it’s just a political pander to the midwest, but still.

Here’s hoping something actually gets done!
