Old news in new form. No matter how much we say it, every time we hear it, repeat it and pass it on I like to think one more person gets the message.
At a protest on Capitol Hill this afternoon, hundreds of people dressed as referees called "foul" on members of Congress for supporting the Keystone XL pipeline while taking millions of dollars in campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry. The protest was the first of many similar actions across the country as reformers go on the offensive against Big Oil and its political allies in Congress who have given billions in handouts to fossil fuel companies while slowing down progress on the nation�s transition to 100 percent renewable energy.
