|Good to see Hillary Clinton put this in the context of climate change, although certainly tar sands development - which Keystone XL encourages by making its economics marginally better/less bad - is extremely destructive environmentally in other ways as well. Also, great work by climate activists like the great Bill McKibben; as David Roberts writes, this is a "huge victory" for all of us who fought this monstrosity. Of course, the battle won't be won until we've converted 100% to a clean energy economy, and in short order. That means no new natural gas pipelines or fracking projects either by Dominion Power or anyone else, by the way.|
P.S. Late today McKibben tweeted: "So far today 1)$2.6 trillion divested 2)@LeoDiCaprio joins in the effort 3)@HillaryClinton opposes #kxl Pope should visit more often"
