WOW!!! US House of Reps pass climate change bill with major tropical forest provisions
This is a day to celebrate. Several news agencies are reporting that the US House of Representatives passed by a narrow vote of 217-205 the American Clean Energy and Security Act.
A few years ago, this would have been absolutely laughable. America should be proud that such a bill could pass this chamber in such difficult times.
This vote will also give US negotiators to the UNFCCC some much needed credibility.
In celebration, I am posting one of my favorite photos for everyone to enjoy. You Bet! It's Mr T and Nancy Reagan.
