Voters in California will have a chance to kill the Death Penalty this November

1 post / 0 new

Opponents of the death penalty collected the 800,000 signatures necessary to put a ballot measure up for a vote in November to abolish the state’s death penalty. Currently – California has the largest death row population in America – and it costs roughly 300 million to put each inmate to death. If opponents of the death penalty succeed in November – then California will become the 17th state in the nation to abolish capital punishment.

Keystone would be way worse than we thought!

We already know that the Keystone XL pipeline is a disaster waiting to happen. But, it turns out that the impact of that tar sands pipeline could be even worse than we thought. According to a new study by the Stockholm Environmental Institute, Keystone could add four times more carbon pollution to our atmosphere than the State Department originally estimated.
