The Video President Obama Hopes You Won't Notice

Posted: 05/30/2013 2:43 pm

You need to see this: Former Obama administration green jobs advisor Van Jones just came out swinging against Keystone XL.

It's one of the strongest statements yet about what is at stake in this fight -- for the president, and for all of us. Here's the video:

Van doesn't just raise the stakes, he debunks the outright myths that are leading our nation down a road to disaster. But who he is matters just as much as what he says.

Van is the first prominent former Obama official to take such a strong stand. A man who helped set environmental policy in the Obama White House is now making it clear that approving Keystone XL would be a horrific mistake. We should pay attention.

Please watch, and help me spread far and wide.
