The New Budget Deal: Two Steps Forward...

A report from Think Progress about the climate implications of the budget deal between Paul Ryan and President Obama. Solar and wind tax credits are renewed (hurray!) but the oil export embargo is lifted making it more profitable to pump oil and sell it (boo). But if we've learned nothing else from the Republicans over the past twenty years, it should be the art of accepting a compromise that gives us something important and then going to work to renege on the part of the deal we don't like. Onward!

The story is here.
