From the NYT - geography may impact climate legislation:  "’There’s a bias in our Congress and government against manufacturing, or at least indifference to us, especially on the coasts,’ said Senator Sherrod Brown, Democrat of Ohio. ‘It’s up to those of us in the Midwest to show how important manufacturing is. If we pass a climate bill the wrong way, it will hurt American jobs and the American economy, as more and more production jobs go to places like China, where it’s cheaper.’"
