The Keystone Pipeline Bill
“One, climate change is real. Two, climate change is caused by human activity. Three, climate change has already caused devastating problems in the United States and around the world. And, four, it is imperative the United States transform its energy system away from fossil fuels and toward energy efficiency and sustainable energy.”
Bernie Sanders, D-Vermont
“I want to to know why the pipeline is the very first, number one item on the agenda in this new Congress. Who does this new Republic Congress work for? Foreign oil companies or the American people?”
Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts
Bill Moyers (www.billmoyers.com) has done great job of summing up what happened in Congress last week regarding this bill as it passed the House and is working it's way through the Senate.
