We just made history. Together, we have shown what it takes to win: a determined, principled, unrelenting grassroots movement that takes to the streets whenever necessary, and isn’t afraid to put our bodies on the line.

Powered by our organizing, the tide is turning against the fossil fuel industry. Today we can approach all of our work with new eyes. We know that we can fight, and we can win.

We share this video with joy and immense gratitude.

President Obama Rejects TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline Proposal | Radio Boston: Bill McKibben

November 6, 2015

President Obama is rejecting energy company TransCanada’s proposal to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Though the decision is seven tumultuous years in the making for the president, he says it’s time for the country to move on.

“While our politics have been consumed by a debate over whether or not this pipeline would create jobs and lower gas prices, we’ve gone ahead and created jobs and lowered gas prices,” said Obama.

Guest

Bill McKibben, founder of the anti-carbon campaign group 350.org, which tweets @350. He’s also author of several books on climate change, including “The End of Nature” and has been a key opponent of Keystone XL.
