Elizabeth Warren Comes Down Hard Against Global Warming, Separates Herself From Hillary Clinton on Climate Change
By Eric Zuesse (about the author)

On Friday, December 20th, Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren finally separated herself clearly from former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, regarding the issue of climate change and global warming. Here is the story:

TransCanada Corporation wants to build the Keystone XL Pipeline to carry oil from Alberta Canada’s tar sands to two refineries owned by Koch Industries near the Texas Gulf Coast, for export to Europe; and Hillary Clinton has helped to make that happen, but Elizabeth Warren has now taken the opposite side.

Secretary of State Clinton, whose friend and former staffer Paul Elliot is a lobbyist for TransCanada, had worked behind the scenes to ease the way for commercial exploitation of this, the world’s highest-carbon-emitting oil, 53% of which oil is owned by America’s Koch Brothers. (Koch Industries owns 63% of the tar sands, and the Koch brothers own 86% of Koch Industries; Elaine Marshall, who is the widow of the son of the deceased Koch partner J. Howard Marshall, owns the remaining 14% of Koch Industries.)

  1. That’s all very well & good, but Elizabeth is a member of AIPAC who signed a letter to Obama pushing for war with Iran. Bernie Sanders should be our Progressive choice for President!

  2. Considering the high likelihood of an APOCALYPTIC climate crisis coming very soon—much sooner than you seem to think—the senator’s position on that issue is worth celebrating, even if we don’t approve of all her others.

  3. Considering the high likelihood that you are BATSHIT INSANE – much more insane than you seem to think – your position makes me question the education I got from JHU when you were there.

  4. I assume that “awaiting moderation” means no posts criticizing MCM are allowed. Such a pity that an educator would suppress dissent.
