"I was wondering if I would feel more comfortable if it were Bill Clinton and Al Gore saying we needed to do this now, and I think I would," said Felicia Marcus, who was the regional administrator in California for the United States Environmental Protection Agency in the Clinton administration.

Well, Gore hasn't been too conspicuous, but Clinton and Lieberman are both on board. So everything should be fine now.

You. Must. Be. Kidding.
