Climate news this week contained progress and tension. Grassroots opposition has slowed pipeline progress in MA, RI and NH, so CT decided to pull out of the whole concept. On the other hand, in North Dakota the confrontation keeps spiraling, it seems due to a militarized response from the police. Listen in as we discuss.
The reading list:
- Connecticut backs out of pipeline planning
- MA, RI and CT to collaborate for clean energy
- Exxon must answer to NY
- Tensions keep rising at Standing Rock
- VW needs to come clean
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.
Thanks for listening.
