Climate skeptics, seeing rising prospects for a carbon tax, vow to make it 'toxic'

Climate skeptics concerned about the rise of conservative groups favoring a carbon tax are preparing a response that seeks to make the policy politically "toxic" for Republicans who might consider it. The pre-emptive effort, still in its early stages, is designed to discredit the idea that taxing carbon emissions is a good trade-off for lower corporate and individual tax rates, as the nation lurches toward, perhaps, a wide-ranging overhaul to its tax system.

Potent 'Frankenstorm' threatens mid-Atlantic coast

Emergency managers up and down the East Coast are bracing for Hurricane Sandy, a rare storm that forecasters say could bring damaging rain, winds and even snow to the mid-Atlantic and New England next week. Experts say Sandy is likely to mix with a winter storm now moving west, producing a nasty hybrid that government forecasters have dubbed a "Frankenstorm."
