Climate: Too Big a Problem to Get Excited About

Last week the Democrats in Congress agreed with no apparent debate to forget about trying to do anything to preserve climate stability this year, and, in effect, to move the issue to the back burner. 

In the widely-quoted words of Senator Claire McKaskill:

After you do one really, really big, really, really hard thing that
makes everybody mad, I don't think anybody's excited about doing
another really, really big thing that's really, really hard that makes
everybody mad. Climate fits that category.

Tom Toles isn't too happy about this, but has kept his sense of humor. And that's good — right?
