Bill McKibben on Global Warming


This YouTube short video is in the Mother Jones article below but deserves a special place on this page.

350.0rg is planning a large rally in Washington D.C. this month on the 17th.  It is a rally against the Keystone/XL pipeline but really against all fossil fuel extraction.  In our local region it is about moving oil and coal via rail to shore ports for export to developing nations.   

Understand – the fossil fuel industry and other vulture corporations look forward to global warming as it will open more areas for development and drilling of oil and gas reserves.  

Model ALEC bills are related to undermining the strength of the Environmental Protection Agency and eliminating regulations in the fossil fuel industry .
