Wondering what's up with the Theda Skocpol cap-and-trade report you've been hearing about? Here's the deal: 

Skocpol, a Harvard academic, was commissioned by the Rockefeller Family Fund to write a report analyzing what went wrong during the 2009-10 push to pass a climate bill. The resulting 142-page opus -- “Naming the Problem: What It Will Take to Counter Extremism and Engage Americans in the Fight against Global Warming” (PDF, http://bit.ly/VBBinH) -- has kicked up a lot of controversy, and you can read all about it at +Grist:
