What about the climate cliff?

The "fiscal cliff" is a fictional abstraction. The looming climate catastrophe is anything but.

Asked at his first post-election press conference what steps he would take about climate change, President Obama was vague if not dismissive.

"I don't know what either Democrats or Republicans are prepared to do at this point," he said.  "I think the American people right now have been so focused and will continue to be focused on our economy and jobs and growth that, you know, if the message is somehow we're going to ignore jobs and growth simply to address climate change, I don't think anybody's going to go for that."

We have a proposal: investment in green energy jobs that both provide income and protect our natural environment.
