First the goals, then the plan.

I like Biden’s climate goals. They’re probably too conservative, but we have to start somewhere.

I am amused (but not surprised) by the “BUT WHERE ARE THE DETAILS?!” responses. If you wait to announce your goals until you’ve got all the details figured out, everyone will shout about how you’re not doing anything. But if you announce your goals first, everyone will shout about how you have no plan.

And really, the Biden administration can put out all the details they want, but that doesn’t solve the problem of obstructionist Republicans in Congress.
