For those of you not sick to death of the Philip Cooney/document editing/whistleblower Piltz story, Chris Mooney has a nice wrap-up in The American Prospect. He says that Piltz may just have set real changes in motion:

What hath Rick Piltz wrought? It’s too soon to tell, but there’s a new feeling in the air about global warming. It’s a sense that the Bush administration may finally be held to account, by the media and by Congress, for four years of obstruction and denial while a planetary problem steadily worsened.

Sounds almost like the tipping point we keep talking about. Let’s hope it’s not wishful thinking.
