In yet another example of how great a stranglehold corporate polluters have on Washington, the Senate is currently considering a bill, S. 3702, sponsored by West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller that once again offers a handout to Big Oil and other polluters by undermining the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

On Wednesday, both of these fine gentlemen are scheduled to take part in their COMPS poster sessions during the same time, and so far efforts by each player to create an alternative to the Wednesday session have been rebuffed.
