National Journal;12/8/2012, p3
The article discusses the failure of U.S. President Barack Obama to enact a comprehensive reform related to energy and climate-change. It notes the collapse of the "cap-and-trade" in the Senate and how energy and climate change became partisan fodder in 2012 campaign attack ads as the U.S. continues to depend fossil fuels for majority of its energy needs. It cites the need for Obama to bring the passion that candidate Obama did if he wants a legacy on energy.
