Opposition to President Barack Obama's global warming initiative, along with other aspects of his assault on coal, appears to be heating up. What should concern the president – and encourage tens of millions of Americans – is that he no longer can count on Democrats in Congress to support him.

Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, has been a staunch supporter of most of the Obama agenda. But this week, he sent the White House a letter urging the "economic repercussions" of the assault on coal be considered.

Just how much of a change has occurred in Brown's thinking is not known. However, he was firmly in Obama's corner on global warming matters last year. At that time, he opposed a proposal – in which former Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, was a leader – to curb the Environmental Protection Agency's authority regarding greenhouse gases.
