Environmentalists Criticizing Obama Miss The Point

Some environmentalists are upset with Pres. Barack Obama and some congressional Democrats over compromises made to get the Climate Change bill (barely) through the House of Representatives.

Obviously, it's not a perfect bill, nor was it a perfect process, but the bill is a lot better than a do-nothing, Bush-era status quo.

And it will set down a foundation for additional legislation in the future.

You have to start somewhere; in this case, the half-to-60% of a loaf is a huge improvement and victory - - so since it's unclear whether even that can be approved in the Senate, people should work towards Senate passage instead of complaining that the win is not big enough.
