Remember when global warming policies were sold as painless tweaks that would make us all wealthier? Now a Sierra Club editor refers to those policies as "a bitter pill" that must be "pushed down the throat of Congress"

Enough is enough on climate change - The Washington Post
The time for pampering the public has long passed, and it is now necessary to push a bitter pill down the throat of Congress. The president has nothing to lose personally; any action to reduce the U.S. carbon footprint will be on the right side of history. I would rather see the president lose the support of some voters by taking the high moral ground on this issue than to see him wimp out just so that another ineffectual Democrat can win the White House in 2016.
