Another hostage taking in the works to force feed Keystone XL pipeline down our throats? ... Warning from the Sierra Club

4 posts / 0 new

I received an email on 6/11/12 from Ann Mesnikoff of The Sierra Club, the first I have received in a while about the Keystone XL pipeline. It appears that there may be another hostage taking in the works by republicans in Congress to get the pipeline extensions approved. This time, they are seeking to attach the Keystone XL provisions and other anti-environmental regulation provisions to the transportation bill ... all this to please their owners (i.e. donors), the big oil and big coal industry. Here we go again !

Here is a link to a web-based copy of the email :

I checked out the link and read the message. I am one of the lucky people who have Senators that I can count on to stop Keystone.

Who Should an Economy Serve?

The top one percent own half of all the world's assets. In stark contrast, the bottom fifty percent of the world owns less than one percent. According to the 2014 Global Wealth Report from Credit Suisse, global inequality has surged since the 2008 financial collapse. The report explains that while global wealth has more than doubled since the year 2000, the vast majority of overall growth has gone to those who were already wealthy.
