The long, slow death of a climate bill, in comic strip form.
<br/> Grist just published a <a href="http://www.grist.org/article/2011-01-04-the-climate-bill-in-six-acts">comic</a>—written by lovable wonk Dave Roberts—about Congress's futile, feckless, two-year attempt to pass climate change legislation. It's a great bird's eye overview, and if you know nothing at all about the slow, inglorious death of the climate bill, I'm calling it <a href="http://www.grist.org/article/2011-01-04-the-climate-bill-in-six-acts">mandatory reading</a>.<p> For all the gruesome, agonizing, infuriating details of the Senate's failure to pass a bill, read Ryan Lizza's <a href="http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/10/11/101011fa_fact_lizza">incredible 10,000 word deep dive</a> for <em>The New Yorker</em> that ran last October. It's a true feat of insider political reporting, and I'm calling it mandatory reading for anyone who really wants to understand climate politics.</p><br/>
