Two important posts yesterday from Brad Johnson at the Wonk Room that you should check out. The first is an analysis of the EPA’s plan to begin regulating greenhouse gasses in 2010 if congress doesn’t act, and the other is an analysis of the proposed Kerry-Boxer clean energy bill in the Senate. The EPA is looking at tougher measures than I would have thought the Obama administration is prepared to get behind, and Kerry-Boxer is a somewhat stronger and better measure than the American Climate and Energy Security bill that passed the House. But of course ACES passed the House whereas Kerry-Boxer will doubtless be changed many, many times.

For more, see Brad Plumer and Kate Sheppard on Kerry-Boxer and Dave Roberts on the EPA.
