It has become clear that Keystone pipeline is a threat to jobs, health and safety, energy security, food and water security, smart growth, and the climate -- but that's not all it threatens: Now, Keystone XL is becoming toxic for politicians who support it.
There are a number of reasons why this is important, including the fact that it may scuttle the chance (if there ever was one) for any deal. But something else makes this development what the Vice President of the United States might call "a big effin' deal": It tells us once and for all where the real political center lies.
As critical skills needs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) are escalating in today's changing society -- we are challenged to contribute and collaborate in our own communities.
State Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes said at a news conference Thursday that the case was "an open wound" for troopers in New Jersey and around the country. Yet the FBI's full-scale assault on the social movements of the 1960s and 1970s remains an open wound for the nation itself
No, wolves will never be as abundant as they once were across North America, and nobody expects that. But restoring them to just 5 percent of where they once lived, then calling it quits and hunting them down again by the thousands? That's just wrong.
