Grist:”Four stories that should have changed media narrative”

Massachusetts, like the rest of the country, loves clean energy Remember when Scott Brown won the Senate race in Massachusetts and it showed that Obama should resign and the Democratic Party should disband? When Republicans vowed to use their new 41-59 majority to block everything ever? Well, Massachusetts voters think otherwise. They want their new senator to support a clean energy bill: A poll by Benenson Strategy Group, which did polling for President Obama’s campaign, shows a healthy majority of special election voters favors a “cap-and-trade” bill to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Of those voters who pulled the lever for Brown, half also support cap and trade. And 56 percent of all respondents said they would have a more favorable view of Brown if he voted for a cap-and-trade bill.
