Obama's Climate achievements?

Grunwald argues in Time Magazine that Obama deserves more credit for his climate achievements..

I agree the climate debate rarely troubles itself with facts, but Grunwald's commentary in Time doesn't help at all. Many of the grand achievements for the Obama administration he claims (like vehicle and appliance standards) are based on the Energy Policy Act of 2007 (a bill proposed by Bush and passed with bipartisan support that I happened to help write). And yet Obama deserves the credit? It's also fair that the greens aren't impressed by Obama's climate actions, a rough calculation of the other policies you mentioned might reduce global emissions by a quarter percent?
