"President Barack Obama and his Democratic allies plan a major new push for a broad global warming bill... Obama plans to include a call for an energy bill in his Oval Office address about the Gulf on Tuesday night.

You see why this is absolutely necessary, don't you? What if nothing is done and global warming... doesn't happen? What a disaster!
