As much as I like and respect John Dingell, we shouldn’t let him off the hook for dragging his feet on global warming

Congressman John Dingell today announced that he would be retiring at the end of his current term, joining the likes of Alec Baldwin and Shia LaBeouf, both of whom have announced their departure from the limelight in recent days.
