What Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s Death Can Teach Us About Climate Change (Really)

Originally posted at PopularResistance.org http://youtu.be/DuYAU3rpWc0 For the State Department to suggest that the Keystone XL pipeline will not have a negative impact on the environment is like Walter White telling Phillip Seymour Hoffman that heroin is as healthy as kale. If one reads the Obama administration State Department’s Final Environmental Study on the KXL pipeline it is [...]
