Climate's best hope: Another Bush? - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com
Environmentalists won’t want to hear this, but the best hope for saving the planet may be another president named Bush.
As [Jeb] Bush begins to position himself for a presidential run in 2016, former aides and even some greens admit he could be positioned to achieve global warming’s equivalent of a "Nixon to China" moment, especially if he had to work with a Democrat-led Congress.
“I can see him coming around to some combination of a cap-and-trade program as the best alternative to regulate and at the same time not completely abandoning his principles on something by going to a place where we’re scientifically uncertain,” said David Struhs, who served six years as the Bush-appointed head of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
