Video: Hillary Clinton Announces Opposition to Keystone Tar Sands Pipeline

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

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"
