No new carbon dioxide caps for the US

According to BBC News, a filibuster in the Senate successfully blocked a bill that would have introduced carbon dioxide caps and instituted a carbon credit system for factories, refineries, and similar facilities.

Wonderful.

The point may be a moot one, as President Bush had vowed to veto the bill anyway. Let’s just hope we have a more science-friendly President next year.
