Senator Bernie Sanders says, "The idea that we would give a green light for the transportation of 800,000 barrels of some of the dirtiest oils all over the world makes no sense to me."

Thank you for posting. I feel the media even some print are not giving Bernie the attention he deserves.

Hillary is I NCLINED to approve it but didn't ? AND THAT"s a reason for this attack on her.
.
THIS IS THE MEDIA BERNIE DESERVES as follows----
Besides being a republican dream-candidate cause he doesn't vote left all the time----even tho he stole all the points other democrats have been saying for years----Bernie is just too authoritative and an angry ol-man at that. At this recent BLACK- event he got his dander up as usual at a comment made and said if they didn't want him to be there he would leave. At a VT town hall meeting Sanders yelled at two in the audience who disagreed with his position and told them to leave if they didn’t like what he had to say......apparently he doesn't believe in democracy even at a town hall meeting.

The fact of the matter is simple: Bernie Sanders cannot and will not win the Presidency. By supporting him in the primary, you are essentially casting a ballot for the Republican nominee It's not just that he endorses the republicans at times....... . The far left needs to get off the rogue blogs on the internet that give them all these weird ideas about Hillary Clinton being some kind of a warhawk and realize that if Clinton gets the nomination, we DO win. If she doesn't, we lose. Bernie Sanders needs to go the way of Paul Tsongas, and Howard Dean in 1992 and 2004, respectively. If he doesn't, then brace yourself for 4-8 years of having a Republican President and a Congress controlled overwhelmingly by Republicans. http://www.watchblog.com/democrats/archives/009148.html

It sounds all wonderful. But will he be able to achieve his goal after people have voted for him? The 1% behind the politicians are still the ones who are leading our globe.
Thank you.

Jan B - I have to disagree with you. Hillary has yet to prove that she is pro-environment, anti-TPP and not for sale. And an angry man would said a lot more than "I can leave......". Bernie is an independent (as am I) running as a democrat because as we all know - a 3rd party candidate will never win because of the corrupted voting system. Bernie is Republican when it comes to gun-control. There have been many differences between the two candidates pointed out. Rather than "attack in the media" I suggest a prime time debate between these two candidates prior to the primary

Noted. Thanks, Kathryn.
One of the great things about Bernie Sanders is that he won't use "attack messaging." He has stated as much. And, the Netroots Nation event in Phoenix (up north from me) was not a "BLACK-event". It was disrupted by a group chanting "Black Lives Matter." It disrupted Martin O'Malley; Bernie wasn't even on stage. And, when it was his turn, he was very polite---offering to leave. (Some are supposing this was a pro-Hillary group.....)
But, Hillary wasn't even there. She was at a fundraising dinner in another state.

Later, Bernie had a huge gathering in another Phoenix location.....which had been moved from a smaller location to accommodate a crowd of over 11,000-----in conservative "red-state" Arizona! Bernie's crowds are only getting larger; and I think Hillary is worried. I would be, too, if I were her. He doesn't accept Corporate Dark Money......and hasn't waffled on his stance of the KXL, as well as other issues.

The refineries in Texas and Louisiana are old , prone to spills and accidents and in areas that are prone to flooding from the hurricanes that hit there. Build the new state of the art refinery right in Alberta. Keep all the risks right at the source. Besides with the Saudi's flooding the global market and driving the price of oil down, isn't too expensive to continue the tar sands project?

LEAVE ALL FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
82% of Fossil Fuel Reserves must be LEFT IN THE GROUND - 82%! -
if we are to avert Climate CATASTROPHE due to Global Warming.

NO MORE drilling, coal mining, fracking,
and transporting, leaking and spilling and exploding,
and BURNING and spewing into the Atmosphere.
NO MORE exploration for new sources!
This should be Environmentalists' MANTRA:
LEAVE FOSSIL FUELS IN THE GROUND.
==========
Leave the OIL IN THE SOIL
the Coal in the Hole
the Tar Sands in the Land.
Eliminate ALL use and extraction of Dirty Fossil Fuels for Energy, NOW! ASAP

Okay... i'm a Brit watching the approaching election with interest. In a FB quiz I came out as 98% in line with Bernie Sanders' policies!!! I was amazed, not least because I'd never heard of him before! HE certainly deserves a bigger news profile!!!
