New Year thoughts

As we enter 2011, I have some foreboding. 

In the US, the Republican majority in Congress leads me to suspect that the climate will be downplayed in favour of the economy (more than it has been previously).  
In the UK the coalition government has plans to sell off our forests and the second reading of the Energy Bill was described  by one peer as "a dogs breakfast"  . 

It remains to be seen whether this foreboding is justified, or if it is just the usual post seasonal blues.
