Over at the new incarnation of Think Progress, Brad Johnson has given himself a tall order. He also sets down what he calls the "new reality":

The Kyoto Protocol is in shambles, greenhouse pollution is at record levels, and climate disasters are growing in frequency and intensity. To preserve the promise of civilization, we must start anew.

My guess is that the new design bundling all the CAP blogs together under one site (which I like) will be mostly a palette cleanser for the two resident head knockers there. But who knows, maybe they will surprise me and start "anew" with some fresh ideas about how to make real progress on climate change, instead of always playing defense against the dastardly polluters and "deniers." Maybe, just maybe, they'll even stop trying to delegitimize those that offer different paths to what is ultimately the same goal.
