Today’s Politics Are Tomorrow’s Climate Policies (part 2)
1) The next three weeks are crucial to both Republicans and Democrats standing for election.
2) As Americans continue to put the economy and inflation at the top of their priority lists, the momentum has swung back to Republicans, who rank higher with voters on these issues.
3) The House of Representatives is much more Trump-centric than the Senate.
4) Realistically, Congress is finished passing major climate legislation for at least the next two years—probably four or more, depending on the outcome of the 2022 and 2024 elections. The most that can be hoped for are refinements to the already passed legislation based on experience.
