well.keystone is a horrible project, they need to get even more aggressive...because we HAVE REACHED THE CARBON LIMIT FOR A SAFE WORLD...and keystone would add to that,but unless we do more aggressive projects to take away the carbon already there,we are DOOMED anyway,,,maybe keystone would make it happen faster,,but we are on the way out,if we don't deal with this IMMEDIATELY
thanks Cal

Thanks Cal for the link to the excellent article.Kudos to Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Mairead Maguire, Betty Williams, Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, José Ramos Horta, Jody Williams, Shirin Ebadi, Tawakkol Karman, and Leymah Gbowee. for their action. I do hope the letter will carry a lot of weight with President Obama and the Secretary of State Kerry. Read and noted.

Inaction will cost hundreds of millions of lives—and the death toll will only continue to rise.” '
