CONGRATULATIONS TO SEN. KING
Our Senator Angus King showed his independence from Big Oil money this past week as he stood up for us against the Keystone XL pipeline plan.
The KXL would send some of the dirtiest oil on the planet from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast so it can be shipped overseas.
Burning all of the tar sands oil would come at an enormous cost to our global climate, and therefore our economy, health, and security.
Reducing the use of oil and other fossil fuels is a critical step in moving us to a clean energy economy, and a brighter future for our
We are also glad that Senator King has joined Representatives Mike Michaud and Chellie Pingree in supporting an in-depth federal review of any new plans to pipe tar sands oil through Maine and New England.
Congratulations to Senator King for one of the most important decisions he’s made yet for Mainers and all Americans!
