Obama using Oil Spill to Push Cap and Trade - NOT AN ACCIDENT

Obama is making a new push for cap and trade legislation, report Steven Mufson and Michael Shear: "In a speech at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University, Obama made one of his strongest pitches for comprehensive climate legislation, arguing that the case for breaking the nation's addiction to fossil fuels has been made clearer by the environmental catastrophe in the gulf. The president vowed to gather votes for the climate bill in the 'coming months' and repeated his intention to roll back billions of dollars in tax breaks on big oil companies, to tap natural gas reserves as an alternative to coal, and to increase reliance on nuclear power. watxch this youtube/rahm
