Why is it so hard to pass the climate bill before copenhagen?

    In short, because politics work slowly and nothing is ever clear cut. Politicians need time to carefully consider each bill. For one as massive and complex as the Waxman-Markey bill, extra time is needed. Additionally, so much time has been spent debating and agonizing over health care reform, which is currently the hotter issue. Finally, not everyone is sold on a cap-and-trade system for carbon emissions, just like not everyone is sold on universal health care. There are even some climate change skeptics in the mix, although fortunately most politicians do accept the facts.
