Interesting developments

First from the Guardian in England:

George Bush is preparing to make a historic shift in his position on global warming when he makes his State of the Union speech later this month, say senior Downing Street officials
This is followed up on by a Daily Kos poster:
The word behind the scenes is that Bush will announce restrictions on greenhouse gases, including a system of cap and trade that's similar to that employed in Europe. There will also be a big focus on alternative fuels, with a government commitment to supporting expanding the use of renewable sources
Finally, something to watch in the House of Representatives, introduced Friday with 199 cosponsors:
H.R.6 will shift roughly $13 billion in oil industry subsidies toward renewable energy and energy efficiency.
