Climate change deniers to lead Senate; a bad sign for agreement with China on curbing emissions

Mitch McConnell, the senator from coal country and Jim Inhofe, the senator from EXXON-Mobil, are up in arms over the just announced accord with China to curb green house emissions. McConnell appears to be set to take over as Senate majority leader in the next Congress and Inhofe seems a likely choice to head the Senate Environment and Public Works committee.  These two are beholden to the huge carbon conglomerates and are staunch in their stand against environmental regulations.
