Talking to my Senate Republican colleagues about climate change is like talking to prisoners about escaping. Big-business interests, particularly the fossil-fuel industry, led the charge. The justices allowed the fossil-fuel industry to roll heavy artillery out onto the political field, not just its previous musketry. This atmosphere has quashed any Republican effort on climate change, silenced serious climate debate in Congress and ended progress, as desired and directed by the fossil-fuel industry. That’s the climate battle’s other dirty secret: In Congress, on climate, corporate America is not even trying.
