A letter signed by 30 groups asks a vital question of a potential 2016 presidential candidate.
“Secretary Clinton, will you stand with us against Keystone XL?”
That’s what Friends of the Earth, 350.org, Greenpeace, Moms Clean Air Force and more asked in a letter sent to Hillary Clinton Wednesday. The groups tell the former first lady and U.S. senator that building Keystone would be the equivalent of building 46 new coal-fired power plants.
“If we’re going to have a livable planet for future generations—one that’s not fraught with floods, droughts, deadly heat waves and other catastrophic effects—it’s vital that we reject the polluting fossil fuels of the past and move to cleaner, safer energy sources,” the letter reads.
