N.Y. Times on Energy Battle in Washington

I'm working my way through last week's articles after a busy week at my day job. I noticed an interesting piece in the New York Times from last Sunday discussing the various factions among the various energy industry players as it relates to the energy/climate legislation.

I've already noticed that the coal/gas/alt energy ads on TV have started to take over for shrill ads for the various health care factions (hopefully they are all out of ad money). I'd love to believe that the energy debate will be more civil, but given what's at stake I expect an ugly, bloody fight with lots of fearmongering one one hand and false sweetness on the other. It probably won't spill out into the streets, but it should make an otherwise delightful autumn somewhat painful.
