Been wondering what’s up with Theda Skocpol’s climate-bill report you’ve been hearing about? Here’s the deal: Skocpol, a Harvard professor of government and sociology, was commissioned by the Rockefeller Family Fund to write a report analyzing what went wrong during the unsuccessful 2009-10 push to pass climate legislation. The resulting 145-page opus — “Naming the Problem: What It Will Take to Counter Extremism and Engage Americans in the Fight Against Global Warming” [PDF] — has kicked up a lot of controversy, and you can read all about it here at Grist:

• A summary of the report by Philip Bump: Why the environmental movement couldn’t get cap-and-trade passed

• A three-part response from Grist’s David Roberts:
1) What Theda Skocpol gets right about the cap-and-trade fight
2) The road forward from cap-and-trade
3) If you want to pass climate legislation, fix U.S. politics
