Regulating Carbon Dioxide

This seems almost impossible to believe:
The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials.
(NY Times, Feb 18, 2009).

Sometimes I think like I fell dead a few months ago and have woken up in a completely foreign world.

I am still not optimistic, though, that we -- i.e. the world -- can get to a zero-carbon society anytime soon, which is really what we need. These are good starts, though 30 yrs too late.
