If you are an obsessive label-reader and a Greenie, Christmas has come early.  Carbon-labeling amendment approved

The House Energy and Commerce last night approved an amendment introduced by Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) to the Waxman-Markey bill that would require the EPA to explore establishing a national program for labeling products with their “carbon content” — that is, labeling products to show much CO2 was emitted in their manufacture and the warming impact of that CO2.

What’s next?  Carbon Watchers?  A 12-step program for Deniers Anonymous? Another expensive, meaningless, feel-good gesture.
