    he can without waiting for Congress.  It was madness, wasting time waiting for Congress all these years.

      210,000 jobs is a drop in the ocean of the unemployed. Our greater challenge is to get the public to wake up to the fact that our current jobs recovery is terrible.

      The economy lately has been creating about 200,000 jobs a month. At that rate we will not return to 2007 levels of employment until 2021. (Not a typo.) So 210,000 additional jobs by 2020 is trivial...it's a rounding error.

      Using EPA regs to crack down even more thoroughly on all greenhouse gases, from all sources, (a) is within the President's authority, no Congressional action needed, and (b) would create a lot more jobs--as I diaried two years ago and recently.
