Comments Off on Keystone XL battle should be about food security and climate change, not economics

As we await President Obama’s veto of the Keystone XL  pipeline, expected later today, news outlets far and wide are recapping the evolution of the debate. Unfortunately, the headlines often focus on the economy and only mention some vague connection to the environment. In reality, the Keystone XL battle isn’t just about money. It is about reducing fossil fuel emissions and protecting the land necessary for our food and water supplies.

Comments Off on Saying “NO” to the Keystone XL pipeline is just the first step in our environmental revolution

But what does this mean for the United States? Does it mean we won’t have all those promised  jobs ? Will it lead us to living in caves because of a lack of energy ? Are we more vulnerable to ebola, AIDS, asthma, and heart disease? No. It just means we’ve shown that the environmental movement is actually going somewhat forward now .
