We’re at the Upper floor of The Newseum in Washington DC (News Museum) for what Politico newspaper calls its PoliticoPro Events on energy. The discussion peaks, and all of the sudden, I can’t seem to get out of my head that 1985 Aretha Franklin song “Who’s Zoomin’ Who”. Did that ever happen to you? Random song just pops into your head, and for no reason.
But this time, I think there was a reason. The question really is: Who IS zooming who when it comes to energy and climate? Who’s making progress (however that may be defined)? The US or China? Congress or the Obama Administration? Business or Government? Who has reducing carbon emissions more as priority?
