The Center for American Progress sends out a daily email, the Progress Report. Though obviously left-leaning, it’s always fact-packed, and a great way to keep up on the day’s news.

Progress Report is doing a series on the real state of the union, in advance of the President’s speech.

Today’s is on energy and the environment. Check it out — lots of good stuff, familiar to Gristmill readers but nicely crammed into a few short paragraphs.
