Today on The Environment Report...
There are lots of questions about
when and how Congress might tackle
climate change legislation.  Tamara
Keith gives us an update from Washington,
D.C.
Also, the new top guy at the Interior
Department, Ken Salazar, has canceled
some oil and gas leases near national
parks.
And... a mining company plans to blow off
the top of a mountain to extract coal.  But
some nearby residents want wind turbines on
that ridge.  Sandra Sleight-Brennan has
the second in our three part series on
mountaintop mining.
