… there’s a warm spot in Greenland for leaders who play petty political games with the future lives and well-being of our children and grandchildren.

And for this retirement package, the Los Angeles Times is nominating Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.), chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and a man who makes the Republican dinosaur Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe look almost like a reasonable person.

Dingell, who is deeply devoted to the U.S. auto industry, is doing everything in his power to sabotage the U.S. effort to address climate change. It’s democrats like these who inspire Americans to vote for third-party candidates like Ralph A-Plague-on-Both-Your-Houses Nader – or maybe Michael Bloomberg.
