Senate Dems Reenergized on Climate Legislation

This NYT article captures the energy of a reinvigorated Democratic Senate caucus now seemingly determined to bring comprehensive climate/energy legislation to the chamber's floor this summer. While the enthusiasm might be there, there is little certainty that the necessary support from within their own party is politically feasible. How exactly do you craft legislation that punishes oil companies while still enabling them to prop up the local economies of so many coastal states?
