It’s an unseasonably hot June in Washington — today could go over 100 degrees the weatherman says. The heat wave is probably not directly linked to global warming but in case anyone was wondering about what happened to the Lieberman/Warner bill I posted about last week, my colleague Eric Pooley has this great wrap up on the bill’s demise. And underscoring the problem the GAO today released this report that shows there’s a growing consensus of what Congress should do to fix the problem. They better hurry before folks start blaming Congress for the weather in addition to everything else.
