....busted lying their asses off, threatening any scientist who disagreed with them, and manipulated the data to support their cause? Those scientists?
"An endangerment finding from the EPA could result in a top-down command-and-control regime that will choke off growth by adding new mandates to virtually every major construction and renovation project," Thomas Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement. "The devil will be in the details, and we look forward to working with the government to ensure we don't stifle our economic recovery."

I ran through a little time-line.
From what I recall, initially the chances of a legally binding deal, at Copenhagen, was considered unlikely but that that may come in 6 months or so.
Is a legally binding deal a possibility now?
Economics...When a corporation, manufacturer, utility company, chemical production facility or other for-profit entity pollutes or creates a product that pollutes...they are operating at a subsidy...The cost of that pollution is payed for by you and I via government clean-ups, medical costs etc. We subsidize the profits.
