Clinton energy chief: Bin Laden death good for climate legislation

Clinton administration energy chief and former UN ambassador Bill Richardson hopes the killing of Osama bin Laden improves the prospects for climate legislation. According to Politico, Richardson said:

My hope is that from this success in the foreign policy arena two days ago, that he will be emboldened to take once again to the Congress legislation — not just to increase a renewable energy standard — but climate change legislation that this country and the world need… We can sit back and say, well we’ll wait until the next election, wait until the political climate is better. You know if we do that, we’re doomed — if we don’t take action right away.

Ironically, bin Laden was Richardson’s ideological kinsman on climate.
