From the May 2nd USA Today:
Global recession could worsen global warming

Hopes that humankind will deal with Earth's changing climate are in danger of being dashed by the ongoing "Great Recession."

Under the onslaught of the financial crisis, some European nations have turned skittish on forcing limits in heat-trapping "greenhouse" gas emissions. And stateside, House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, has complained that "middle-class families are struggling during this recession," in objecting to similar plans to cap emissions.
Meaning, I guess, that hopes we will deal with the global recession are in danger of being dashed by climate change.
