US Keystone Pipeline Report Gets It Wrong: It’s Not Moving Oil, But Whether To Invest In It notes Richard Matthews at GlobalWarming Is Real. The report wrongly focuses on what is the safest mode for oil transport. Tar sands are far dirter than conventional crude oil, and moving oil by any means in unsafe, as an increasing number of US oil spills attests. Obama has already rebuffed the economic and job benefits of the pipeline. The real focus should be whether the investment will further encourage our deadly addiction to fossil fuels.

This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
