The article reports on Vermont governor Peter Shumlin, who is among few politicians in the U.S. with a firm stand on climatic change issues. The climatic change issue was a significant part of Shumlin's 2010 campaign and he also addressed the issue in his inauguration speech. He asserted that U.S. leaders, who are influenced by the extraordinary economic power of oil, coal, and automobile companies, equivocate about climate change. Shumlin is the son of educational entrepreneurs who launched a student travel agency in a barn.
