In response to the House vote to expedite the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline, author and 350.org founder Bill McKibben said: “Hundreds of thousands of people around the country rallied this fall to oppose the climate-killing Keystone pipeline, and the administration heard them and ordered a new review. Now a tiny coterie of Congressmen is trying to revive the plan, and every one of them has taken big payments from the Big Oil. Everyone around America can do the math–all you have to do is follow the dirty money. (1) “It’s inspiring to see the White House, and Sen. Majority Leader Reid, actually telling Big Oil a firm no–that’s the proper response to a tantrum. We’re all getting tired of seeing polluters hold the political process hostage.” Notes: 1. The House members who supported the bill netted an estimated $43,000,000 in dirty energy money cumulatively since 1999. Source: www.dirtyenergymoney.com/
