Enbridge’s illegal scheme to double tar sands imports

October 28th 2014

Visual: Enbridge, the largest Canadian pipeline company, has come up with an illegal scheme to nearly double the capacity of its Alberta Clipper tar sands pipeline (aka Line 67), igniting a new wave of tar sands imports through Minnesota, to Superior, Wisconsin. Enbridge wants to bypass the Presidential Permit process by transferring the dirty tar sands crude from Alberta Clipper to another pipeline, called Line 3, just north of the border, then re‐ transferring it back to Line 67 once it’s crossed into the U.S.

Climate Impacts, Creating a Low Carbon Future

A group shout on climate change

September 29th 2014

Visual: The UN Climate Summit in New York City clearly moved the ball forward, not so much in the official speeches but on the streets and in the meeting rooms where corporate leaders, investors, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and state and local officials pressed the case for stronger action. President Obama, for one, was as eloquent as ever: “For all the immediate challenges that we gather to address this week there’s one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other, and that is the urgent and growing threat of a changing climate.”
