Good news on tar sands

Some rare, but welcome, good news from the campaign Bill McKibben and others have been co-ordinating in the USA against the proposed Keystone pipeline. Obama is not going to approve it in this administration and has called for further investigation.

Of course, that doesn’t mean it won’t be approved in 2013 by whoever wins the next election, nor is the fight over in Canada, with other pipelines proposed, but seeing any sort of environmental victory of this magnitude is a very pleasant surprise.

We wish Bill well for the next environmental battle, whatever that turns out to be.
